ADA Putting the Well-Being of Attendees First


ADA Putting the Well-Being of Attendees First. Live version of annual meeting will not take place in Orlando in October.

The American Dental Association (ADA) and FDA have made the difficult decision not to move forward with ADA FDC 2020 as an in-person meeting, originally scheduled for October 15-18, 2020 in Orlando. A decision will be made in the near future as to whether the ADA House of Delegates will meet in person. These decisions have been made after extensive research, careful deliberation, and feedback from our members and past attendees.

As a science-based organization, the health, safety, and well-being of our members, attendees, staff, and exhibitors are our top priorities. The COVID-19 pandemic has made a significant impact on our profession and communities; however, we are certain that as we continue to stand with each of you-shifting our focus to recovery and getting back to work-we will come out of this stronger together. This postponement is just the latest of many live events that have been cancelled or postponed since this spring in effort to slow the spread of the virus.

“As we transition our planning, we are exploring virtual options. We will share more information as it becomes available,” a statement on the ADA website reads.

The latest updates will be shared here on as well as on the COVID-19 Resource Center on the home page. If you have questions related to ADA FDC 2020, feel free to contact the ADA at
