The Scientific Session will be held on Thursday October 4th from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. The TDO Software User Meeting will take place on Friday October 5th from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday October 6th from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Breakfast will be served at 7 a.m. and lunch at noon on all days.


A reception, including dinner and entertainment, will be on Friday from 6:30 to 10 p.m. at the Paradise Point Resort. Please check the complete Schedule of Events for more details. For those interested, golf will be on Wednesday afternoon this year since the Scientific Session will be a full day on Thursday. The hotel offers a package to the Sycuan Resort which includes transportation. We thought an early afternoon tee time would allow travel time in the morning.


Pre-Convention Lectures

This year, we have two pre-convention courses available on Wednesday, October 3, 2018 for people who can come early.

Our Wednesday AM lecture will feature Dr. Eric Rindler and his topic will be “The 7S Framework: A Tool to Help Position Your Practice for its Best Future.” There is room for 30 attendees and the signup and description for it is on the Web page listed below.

There will be no CE credit for this lecture but by all accounts, it will be an outstanding course, from an incredible clinician and teacher.

In the afternoon on Wed, we will have a pre-convention lecture given by Dr. Gerd Gigerenzer, the speaker for the all day Scientific Session on Thurs. This Wednesday afternoon course will be a limited attendance (10-12 clinicians) specifically designed for speakers on inference, clinical decision making, and statistics.

Again, you may sign up on the Web site.There will be a private dinner with Dr. Gigerenzer after the lecture.

Some highlights for this year are:

  • Two full days of TDO Software training sessions for doctors, staff and guests–including tracks for assistants, clinicians and new vs advanced users.
  • Mock operatory setup and computer lab
  • Friday evening dinner with entertainment.
  • Complimentary transportation from hotel room to conference center via the Paradise Point Tram service.
  • Continuing Education credits provided by the Dental Board of California
  • Continuing Education credits provided by ADA CERP
