Be sure to check the Calendar of Events for events taking place around the state.
Dentists have the chance to attend CE Events that introduce new ideas and hone your skills. These events—like Connect4Success, MERIT and Travel & Learn—also are a great time to reconnect with your colleagues across the state. The MDA also offers EFDA Courses for dental auxiliaries.
At Outreach Events dental professionals come together to reconnect and provide tangible benefits for Missouri citizens. At events like Mission of Mercy, Give Kids a Smile and Special Olympics, dentists and their teams volunteer to give their best care to help create better health for our communities.
At Advocacy Events like the annual Legislative Reception and Legislative Day, your attendance means you make sure your voice is heard on issues important to dentistry. These are great events to meet and talk to your legislators to make sure they know the issues you face as a small business owner and health care provider, and those that affect your patients—like insurance and Medicaid funding. Members also may attend the MDA House of Delegates where delegates advocate on various Association business items, vote on resolutions, determine annual dues, elect Association officers and honor award recipients.
Sometimes, you just want to attend an event to socialize with your friends in dentistry! MDA offers the annual Day at the Game is a tailgate party followed by an MU Tigers football game, the I Heart Dental Charities Raffle, which is held in conjunction with the Mid-Continent Dental Congress. Plus, many MDA Component Societies offer social events.
Track Your CE Online
MDA members now can use their My ADA account to help them track CE credits! Members can log their CE credits and can find already-logged CE credits for any courses they have taken through the ADA, MDA or component society that uploads CE course attendance data.
