Registration Information

Registration opens in January, 2024
Dentists, dental team members, guests, and family members, whether in-state or out of state, are all welcome to register for the event. However, businesses or vendors interested in attending must do so as paid exhibitors. Please note that registration fees will increase by $50 after April 1, 2024. These fees cover access to all CE courses (excluding CPR and Hands-On courses), entry to the exhibit hall, participation in exhibit hall events, refreshments, and the opportunity to partake in beachside yoga. There may be extra charges for social events. All CE courses, except for CPR and Hands-On courses, will be recorded on-site and subsequently made available virtually after the Annual Session. Please note that Dr. Gordon Christensen's lecture will not be accessible in a virtual format. Attendees also have the option to purchase virtual access to select CE courses for an additional $50.

Registration Information: 
  1. Attendees must register for their CE sessions this year. Seating is limited, and it's first-come, first-served.
  2. NCDS member dentists should provide their American Dental Association membership number. If you are unsure of your ADA number, please reach out to Ryan Couch at or call 919-234-4020.
  3. The NCDS accepts Visa, Discover, and MasterCard. Unfortunately, we do not accept AMEX.
  4. Spouses and children (age 12 and under) of dentists and dental students can register at no cost. Non-dentist spouses and children must register separately as paid guests.

These on-demand CE courses will only be accessible from June 1 to July 31, 2024. House of Delegate members will receive virtual access at no charge.
