Bookmark your calendar to return to the world class city of Chicago for our 152nd Midwinter Meeting, Thursday - Saturday, Feb. 23-25, 2017. The theme of our meeting will be Leadership: Cornerstone for Success.
We have an exciting program planned, including great special events like our New Dentist Reception and Friday Night Concert. This year, we've added a special Staff Reception for Friday evening. Now the whole team can unwind together.
And we've made it easier than ever to bring your whole team through incentives like our 3=1 FREE and Member Bring a Non-Member programs. Learn more below.
The CDS member leadership team continuously looks for ways to improve the Midwinter Meeting. That’s why the Chicago Dental Society continues to be The Respected Leader in Scientific Dental Meetings.

For details, please see the course descriptions, which are listed by day.
You liked them and you missed them. Live Patient Demonstrations return to the Midwinter Meeting in 2017. Each day the meeting will feature a different live patient demonstration and each one is another FREE course.
The Virtual Tradeshow Bag will be filled with special offers from our exhibitors and is emailed to the primary registrant beginning Feb. 22. Attendees may also access the Virtual Tradeshow Bag when they download the Midwinter Meeting mobile app when it becomes available in November. Log in and take advantage of the special offers.
With the Wisconsin Dental Association cancelling its annual meeting, CDS invites all attendees from Wisconsin to a special breakfast reception Friday, Feb. 24. Attendees only need to present their badges showing they are from Wisconsin to enter. The reception will run from 7:30 to 9 a.m. in the foyer area outside W375.
One of the benefits of joining CDS is that members register for free. And of course, we offer more than half of our courses free of charge, too. But we have also made it easier for you to bring your whole office to the Midwinter Meeting!
Your response to our 3=1 FREE program was overwhelming positive, so we took it a step further and removed the limitations making it a 3=1 FREE for all paying categories. For every three paying attendees that you sign up, you can register a fourth paying attendee for free. The special offer is expanded to include all paying attendee categories. The value of the lowest cost registration fee will be automatically credited based on the date you pre-register. This incentive does not apply to fees for courses or special events tickets.
For the first time, CDS members who register under Category A can register a non-member dentist (Category G) as part of their registration. The non-member registration fee will be waived one time only. Here’s an opportunity to introduce or re-introduce the best dental meeting to non-members you know. This a limited offer; non-members can attend only one Midwinter Meeting free of registration charges.
With four registration tiers – November, December, January and February – November offers the lowest fees. Both December and January increase in price, with February online registration fees being the same as on-site fees.
