ADA SmileCon

October 13, 2022 - October 15, 2022
George R. Brown Convention Center, Houston, TX, US


SmileCon™ is the ADA’s annual meeting, reimagined for the future. From dentists to dental hygienists and business assistants to lab techs, SmileCon brings together dental professionals from around the U.S. and 50+ other countries. SmileCon 2022 will be a dental meeting to the power of 3—we are combining SmileCon with the Greater Houston Dental Society’s Star of the South and Texas Dental Association Annual Meeting. The TDA meeting will not be held in 2022 and the GHDS Star of the South meeting will not be held in 2023.


Dental Central — formerly known as the Exhibit Hall—is the hub of activity at SmileCon, both for socializing and for business. Now with three meetings in one, you will have more attendees on the floor, meaning more potential customers for you. Dental Central will continue to be the place for quality networking and more opportunities for attendees to “do” rather than just “watch.”
