Meetings & Events

Throughout each year, ISDS hosts special conferences and numerous continuing education opportunities statewide for its members. The local component dental societies and the American Dental Association both sponsor conferences on particular areas of interest as well as CE courses for the entire dental team.

ISDS maintains a master calendar of these events. We invite our local components and branches to post items on the master calendar. Contact Janell Marshall for details.
