The ADA News (6/16, Versaci) reports, “The American Dental Association and Florida Dental Association have decided not to move forward with the ADA FDC Annual Meeting as an in-person convention in light of the COVID-19 pandemic.” The article reports that the associations “made their decision based on extensive research, careful deliberation and feedback from their members and past meeting attendees.” The ADA and FDA are now exploring virtual options for the event, which was originally scheduled for Oct. 15-18 in Orlando, Florida. “It was a difficult discussion, but our members and their concerns are our first priority. The health and safety of our dental family is at the heart of this decision,” said Dr. Nan Tertel, general chair of ADA FDC 2020. “We look forward to virtual possibilities in 2020 and meeting face to face in Las Vegas 2021.”
