For every three paying registrants that you sign up, you can register a fourth paying registration for free, making the Midwinter Meeting more affordable for all attendees. The value of the lowest cost registration fee will be automatically credited at the time of registration.


The 2019 Midwinter Meeting will be held at the McCormick Place West Building, 2301 S. Indiana Ave., Chicago, IL 60616.

CDS members register for free

Are you an ADA member?

Join CDS as an Associate Member for only $125 and pay no registration fee. That’s a $70 savings compared with on-site registration fees. Join now.


Connect with CDS

If you are an ADA member outside Lake, Cook, and DuPage counties in Illinois or an international dentist, you can still join the Chicago Dental Society and enjoy the same benefits as local members. As a CDS member, you are connected to the most important industry meeting of the year, with free admission to the Midwinter Meeting. It makes perfect sense to join, because the cost of your CDS membership is less than the registration fee for a non-member. 

Become a CDS member

Become a CDS member and enjoy easy, convenient access to a tremendous range of CE courses available at the Midwinter Meeting – many of which are free. There’s something for every member of your dental team. See why your dentist colleagues are CDS members and attend the Midwinter Meeting.
