California Dental Association Spring Session Starts Friday

Posted by dentalinsider on May 1, 2008

The California Dental Association’s Annual Spring Session kicks off on Friday in Anaheim, California. Many are taking a wait and see approach to this year’s show now that we are smack dab in the middle of an economic downturn. It will be interesting to see if any of the tax credits in this years economic stimulus program will be enough to jump start a dental equipment buying frenzy. The CDA did something I have not seen in previous years, they released pre-registration numbers. They are as follows:

Dentists – 6,225
Office Staff – 2,785 and Lab Tech/CDT – 241
RDA/DA – 6,371 and RDH – 2,933
Guests -2,335

Let’s see what the actual through the door numbers look like. I doubt they will ever release those.

If you are attending…have a great show!

    I was at the CDA meeting today. The Exhibit Hall opens tomorrow but there were many dentists in classes today.

    Where will you be tomorrow?

    E-mail me.

    I will be in Anaheim early tomorrow and will be out there over the next few days.

    I would suspect there is a lot of buzz about the leadership changes at the ADA.
