Dr. Odiatu

Registration for SmileCon opens June 7, offering three different pass options to help you meet, play, learn and smile in the way that fits you best.

SmileCon will take place Oct. 5-7 in Orlando, Florida. Registration options include the Smile Pass, Platinum Smile Pass and Dental Central Pass. All three give you access to the Opening Session, Dental Central and Saturday Keynote.

The Smile Pass — the meeting’s most popular pass and best value — gets you in the classroom for a wide variety of continuing education, in addition to the courses you have access to in Dental Central. You can also add hands-on activities, or workshops, for an additional fee.

For those who want it all, the Platinum Smile Pass features most hands-on activities at no additional charge, fast-track entry into presentations and other special upgrades. The meeting’s Botox course is available for an additional fee.

The Dental Central Pass is more limited in scope, only providing access to Dental Central, including exhibits and the CE offered there. These courses will focus on wellness, technology and the dental team but will not include hands-on clinical courses.

Early-bird pricing for ADA member dentists is $399 for the Smile Pass, $2,999 for the Platinum Smile Pass and $149 for the Dental Central Pass. This pricing ends June 23.

To help you pick your courses, the meeting’s Agenda Builder opens May 12. There you’ll be able to see course schedules and details about the fun festivities SmileCon has in store, including the Grin & Gobblin’ Fest and A Night at Universal’s Islands of Adventure.

Two of the featured speakers at this year’s SmileCon will be Uche Odiatu, D.M.D., and Denise Williams-Jones.

Dr. Odiatu is a practicing dentist in Toronto, as well as a National Strength and Conditioning Association-certified personal trainer, author, certified yoga instructor and certified boot camp instructor. His courses will focus on nutrition, gut health and fitness and the ways they impact your patients’ overall health and your own performance as a health care professional.

"My goal for my audiences is to ignite or reignite their enthusiasm for total patient health,” Dr. Odiatu said. “I am using my insider strategies as an NSCA-certified personal trainer, lifetime athlete experience and as a practicing dentist. The new science of the mouth-body-mind connection is very compelling."

Ms. Williams-Jones’ courses will focus on setting goals, implementing systems that boost productivity and putting together a strong team, reflecting her experience as a registered dental assistant and the founder of Next Level to Success, a dental customer service consulting firm.

“In my courses, you can expect as a team member to come away empowered with a sense of what is expected of you and your role in the practice,” Ms. Williams-Jones said. “You will find clarity and learn practical tools to foster leadership skills and improve current communication in your office.”
