Yes. Access to the Dental Implant Program will be available until 11:59 EST Dec. 10.

Can I register for the meeting and get immediate access?


Advance registration is strongly recommended because it offers cost savings and instant entry when the virtual meeting opens Oct. 1.

Meeting registration will remain open through the duration of the meeting. However, those who register after Sept. 30 will not gain immediate access to the virtual meeting Oct. 1. Anyone registering during the live event Oct. 1 to 10 may have to wait up to 24 hours to receive access.

If attendees would like to have session recordings for longer-term access, they can purchase the session recordings at AAOMS.org/Recordings.

Are additional tickets needed for any of the sessions?


All sessions and special events are included in the general registration fee for this year’s meeting. Those who register only for the Dental Implant Program will not be permitted to attend any special events and are encouraged to purchase the reduced general registration.

Will there be an Exhibit Hall this year?


Yes! The meeting features a virtual Exhibit Hall of more than 50 exhibitors and is open 24/7 from Oct. 1 to 10. During specific times, attendees will be able to engage directly with representatives.

Select exhibitors also will host live and on-demand educational sessions, which can be viewed in the exhibitor-hosted education auditorium. A schedule of all exhibitor-hosted educational sessions is available in the online meeting schedule.

Can I visit the Exhibit Hall at my leisure?


Attendees will gain full access to the Exhibit Hall during the virtual meeting and can reference the booths for 60 days after the meeting. Contact forms will be available when no representative is active in the booth, allowing attendees to still connect with the exhibitor.

Which sessions are available to my spouse/significant other?

Can I store files and documents from presenters and exhibitors?

These briefcases also will be prepopulated with relevant materials that attendees may find valuable. Attendees can download document files directly to their computer for future use.

All items will remain in the attendee’s briefcase until Dec. 10, when meeting platform access ends. Please note that attendees will not be able to download sessions, but they will be invited to purchase session recordings for long-term use.
