2020 Oregon Dental Conference Canceled: March 13, 2020
We regret to inform you that we have cancelled the 2020 Oregon Dental Conference. The decision to cancel the conference is based on Governor Kate Brown's recently announced ban on public gatherings of more than 250 people, as well as growing concerns surrounding the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak in Oregon. We thank you for your support of the ODC and your understanding during this unexpected time. Please mark your calendar for the 2021 Oregon Dental Conference scheduled for April 8-10, 2021 and view our full letter to attendees for additional information.
Why did you cancel the 2020 Oregon Dental Conference?

Will 2020 Oregon Dental Conference be rescheduled to take place later this year?
Unfortunately, because of the magnitude of the three-day conference, rescheduling at the Oregon Convention Center this year is not a viable option.
