It is with much regret that we announce that the 2020 Midwest Dental Conference and all related events and activities, April 16 – 19, 2020 in Kansas City, Missouri, have been cancelled due to spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19).

Under the authority of Kansas City, MO Mayor Quinton Lucas’s State of Emergency proclamation, and per new Center for Disease Control (CDC) guidance, no events or gatherings with 50 or more attendees will be allowed in Kansas City for the next eight weeks. With this new information, we must safeguard the health of all attendees, guests, presenters, exhibitors and staff who are a part of the event. As part of our larger dental family, we want to do all we can to help ensure your safety.
