Registration Fees

We have extended our Advanced Pricing through Wednesday, January 8, 2014.

Due to last week’s storm here in New England, the Advance Pricing deadline has been extended to January 8th! This is your chance to save before registration prices go up. If you would like to receive your badge via mail you need to register by January 10, 2014.

If you are already registered the mailing of badges/tickets began on December 27, 2013 and will continue through January 13, 2014.

Important Registration Tips

  • Preregister to avoid being sold out of popular courses and to eliminate waiting in line at the meeting. Everyone must register.
  • Guests must be sponsored by a paid registrant and listed as a guest in the space provided on the sponsor's registration form. The sponsor must verify that the guest is not a dentist, hygienist, assistant, technician, or office personnel. Guests cannot receive CE credits.
  • Payment is required at the time of registration. We accept check, MasterCard, Visa, or American Express. Use your Bank of America MasterCard and earn points toward airfare, merchandise, cash back, and more while supporting your association!
  • Course Codes are located directly above the course titles. Be sure to write the entire code on your registration form.
  • Alternate Course Selections: We are offering many repeat courses. To avoid being sold out of a desired course, please choose an alternate time and date. Check the "similar course" list on our Web site.
  • Do not select courses that have conflicting times. It is your responsibility to make sure you do not double-book yourself into courses scheduled for the same time.
  • Fax/Email Permissions: By registering for Yankee Dental Congress, you are authorizing YDC to fax or email you periodic updates relating to the conference.
  • All courses will start on time. Please allow yourself plenty of time.
  • Expo Only: Registrants cannot receive CE or general attendance credits except for Live Dentistry, Dental Office Pavilion, Healthy Living Pavilion, High-Tech Playground, Social Media Hotspot, and select CE on the Show Floor courses.
