Meetings & Events


Be sure to check the Calendar of Events for events taking place around the state.

CE Events

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.

Outreach Events

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.

Advocacy Events

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. Members also may attend the MDA House of Delegates where delegates discuss and vote on various Association business items and resolutions, determine annual dues, elect Association officers and honor award recipients.

Component Societies

The MDA is comprised on eight component societies that offer both CE and social events. Click on these direct links for information.

American Dental Association

Dentists can find high quality, innovative CE, as well as professional activities and opportunities to network with colleagues. Use the ADA Event Calendar to plan ahead and discover 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. 

CERP Recognized Provider


The MDA is an ADA CERP Recognized Provider. ADA CERP is a service of the American Dental Association to assist dental professionals in identifying quality providers of continuing dental education. ADA CERP does not approve or endorse individual courses or instructors, nor does it imply acceptance of credit hours by boards of dentistry. Concerns or complaints about a CE provider may be directed to the provider or to the ADA CERP website.
