Attendees who register by Oct. 31 will receive their registration packets – including meeting badge, badge holder and any preconference tickets – in the mail before the conference.*
Those registering after Oct. 31 will pay the onsite registration rate and must pick up their meeting badges onsite at the AAOMS Registration Desk. Advance registration will save time when arriving at the conference and is strongly recommended.
*International (non-U.S. and non-Canada) registrants must check in at the AAOMS Will Call/International Packet Pickup counter at the Sheraton Grand Chicago. We regret we cannot mail registration packets to addresses outside the United States and Canada.
Back by popular demand: The Dental Implant Conference General Sessions will be simulcast live! Participate from your home or office. This is a great alternative for those who cannot travel to Chicago. Member and non-member rates are available. Visit the 2018 Registration page to register for the live simulcast.

On Thursday, Nov. 29, registrants will receive an email with a link to the simulcast along with login credentials and instructions. Registered participants also will receive a reminder email each day of the conference. CDE/CME credit is included.
AAOMS residents can access the simulcast at no cost. Registration is not required. Residents should contact their program director for complimentary access to the simulcast, including the 60-day event archive. Note: This complimentary access does not include continuing education credit.

Consent to Use Photographic Images and Recordings
Registration and attendance at, or participation in, AAOMS meetings and other activities constitutes an agreement by the attendee to AAOMS’s use and distribution (both now and in the future) of the registrant’s or attendee’s image or voice in photographs, electronic reproductions, video and audio recordings of such events and activities. No individual or entity may photograph, audio record or video record any portion of the conference.
Conference Mobile App
The AAOMS Events mobile app for your smartphone or tablet will allow you to create your personal schedule, network with colleagues, locate vendors in the Exhibit Hall, find local attractions and more. The app for the Dental Implant Conference will be available to meeting participants this fall.
There will be no Media/Press Registration Booth at the Dental Implant Conference. Media and press representatives wishing to attend the Dental Implant Conference MUST notify AAOMS communications staff in advance of the conference to register. Press badges are available only to working press who can show evidence that their attendance results in coverage of the AAOMS conference in print, broadcast or recognized internet media. AAOMS reserves the right to inspect the credentials of anyone registering as press. Working press may not also register as exhibitors.
To obtain a press badge, identification certifying you are a working member of the print or broadcast news media and/or a letter stating you are on assignment to cover the conference is required. Membership cards from communications or writers’ organizations are not sufficient to establish eligibility. Press badges allow access to the Exhibit Hall. AAOMS reserves the right to restrict press attendance at any portion of the conference. Media and press representatives must agree to adhere to the AAOMS Press Guidelines, which are available upon request.
