Future Dates

Our next College Connect will be on Tuesday, May 16th at 5:30 PM. Save the date! In March, we’ll announce the topics and you can sign up to attend.

Watch this page for more dates.

We reserve the right to cancel or reschedule a College Connect.


Each College Connect will be about different topics, based on what’s important and timely. We’re using a town hall approach so we can share information, get your feedback and answer your questions.

These sessions are a great opportunity for you to learn more about upcoming changes and what’s happening that impacts dental assisting practice. The sessions will be hosted by members of our Council and staff who are looking forward to connecting with you.
