Events

wash2April 26-27, 2016

The DTA Washington Conference has become one of the most important ways you, as a member, can become involved in federal legislation and educate congressional leaders about oral health care and our industry.  The congressional visits DTA members made during the past Washington Conferences had a direct effect on our industry’s victory of the bill passing to delay the excise tax on medical devices.  You are the most valuable resource the industry has when it comes to building relationships with our elected officials and initiating change. Join us in 2016 as we make further strides for our industry!

am3DTA recognizes the importance of providing timely and informative programming as well as opportunities to network with industry peers to ensure our members are on top of trends and issues that are relevant to their businesses.  We also understand that as a unified voice we can have a greater impact on the issues that affect our industry.  Throughout the year and around the country, DTA offers a range of programs and events to address these objectives.  From our Annual Meeting to the Washington Conference to Mini Dental Schools and Emerging Leader events, DTA is always striving to provide our member companies with programming that will position them and their employees for success.  Check back often to see what DTA has planned for you during the coming year.

ELdegustibus2“This is so much fun, cooking and eating at De Gustibus!” one attendee texted back to their colleagues.  In keeping with Thanksgiving themes of food and fun on November 30, DTA’s Emerging Leaders gathered at the De Gustibus Cooking School in New York’s Herald Square for a night of great food, drink and to watch a celebrity chef at work. New York chef Michael Ferraro (Delicatessen and macbar) prepared a four course meal while interactively instructing the group through the preparation of each course. He carefully deconstructed each dish for all cooking levels to understand and offered tricks of the trade. A Sommelier introduced wine pairings with each course and made them available at discounts for the attendees. All received a full menu of recipes, descriptions of each wine and a free subscription to the food magazine of their choice.

DammeyerThe Emerging Leaders’ wine tasting event was well attended and offered a relaxed networking opportunity after a long day on the show floor at McCormick Place.   Attendees learned about wine pairings from Midmark Corporation‘s Director of Guest Services and trained sommelier, Todd Dammeyer, followed by mingling with fellow colleagues in the dental trade.  The DTA’s Emerging Leaders have become one of the most popular and growing groups with events planned throughout the year in conjunction with other dental meetings around the country. 

“Loved the EL gathering – It gave me an opportunity to meet with DTA members who I have been wanting to get to know better and reacquainted with some old friends,” said Kelly Beauregard of SolmeteX

DTA’s Emerging Leaders were the toast of Manhattan when they gathered for an evening of fun, food, bowling and networking at the Bowlmor Lanes in the heart of Times Square on Monday, December 1st during the Greater New York Meeting. After an hour plus of enjoying heavy hors d’oeuvres and networking, the entire group hit the lanes to bowl into the wee hours of the evening. Though competitive by nature, a lot of team building exercises ensued as various teams competed with each other in the true spirit of the holiday season.
