Top Dental Conferences 2022-2023

Dental Cruise| Dental CE| Dental Hygiene CE
October 14, 202218 min read

With so many amazing dental conferences happening all the time (and some of them at the same time -- no fair!) it’s impossible to avoid at least one annual case of FOMO.

‍You’ve got enough on your plate already, so we compiled this list of top dental conferences happening from Fall 2022 through all of 2023 (in date order).

‍Of course, you won’t be able to make them ALL… whether because they overlap or they’re just too far away or too soon for you to plan… but this guide can serve as a point of reference for future planning since most conferences are held at about the same time each year.

‍We'll be continuously updating this list so keep checking back! Happy conferencing!
