COVID-19 Considerations

—    Contactless registration and materials pickup
—    Mask requirements in accordance with the city ordinances at the time of the conference
—    Proper spacing in meeting rooms and lines in accordance with city ordinances

In the event that we will need to cancel the 2022 Midwest Dental Conference’s in-person activities, attendees will have the choice of a full refund or applying paid fees toward a virtual conference option.

Safety Considerations
We ask that to keep fellow attendees and exhibitors safe, you follow recommended guidelines and best practices and do not attend if you have any symptoms or have come in close contact with someone with COVID-19 leading up to the 2022 Midwest Dental Conference.


You’ll find all of our exhibits in the Crown Center Exhibit Hall, attached to the northwest corner of the Sheraton Kansas City Crown Center. This centerpiece of the conference makes discovering what’s new in dental equipment, materials and services fun, friendly and convenient. The Exhibit Hall is open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Friday and 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday.


This year we will continue to have 30-minute breaks during scientific sessions on Friday and Saturday. Check individual course listings for session start and end times.
