Health and Safety | SmileCon

April 6, 2021

ADA and the SmileCon™ team take health and safety very seriously. After all, ADA is a science-and evidence-based organization.

The situation with COVID-19 is still an evolving one, so it’s too early to know the specific infection control measures that will be needed in October. Before registration opens this summer, we will provide updated travel recommendations to help you make plans. Here’s what we know right now:

  • The SmileCon team is working closely with our host venues, Mandalay Bay and the MGM Grand, to monitor local infection rates and capacity limits in Las Vegas. SmileCon plans will be in response to these and other relevant data, as well as to guidance from the ADA and Centers for Disease Control (CDC).
  • Mandalay Bay and the MGM Grand have many safety measures already in place that align with best practices. Read here about the 7-point safety plan of MGM Resorts.
  • As details are added to SmileCon plans, they will be posted on this page.

We look forward to coming together with our dental colleagues at SmileCon in Las Vegas on Oct. 11-13! If travel is not in the cards for you this year, there will be opportunities to Meet, Play, and Learn in a virtual environment. Check back for updates later in the spring.
