FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What is a virtual event?

A virtual event is essentially an event that you can attend from the comfort and convenience of your home, office, or wherever else you can think of, through your personal computer or mobile device. 

Yankee Virtual will replicate a ‘physical’ location-based event, but online. You can expect one-to-one live chats and videoconferencing, live courses and presentations, integrated social media channels as well as ‘real time’ networking features. There are no limitations on the interactivity of a virtual event. We are bringing two worlds together for a shared unique experience! 

Do Yankee Virtual courses count for Live CE Credit?

Yes, we will be offering two types of programming. The first will be Virtual Live programs at designated times with Q/A with the speaker for attendees that will count toward your Live Credits. The second will be pre-recorded webinars that do not have the ability for Q/A with the speaker, which will be considered online/self-study. 

Are there special promotions for ADA members and staff?

Yes, ADA members are eligible for special pricing and the first 1000 attendees will receive a PPE Kit featuring 10 N95 masks, 5 face shields, a fit kit, plus various samples from exhibitors (Value $250+). 

Do I have access to all of the educational sessions?

In a word, yes, depending on the registration package that you sign up for! You will be given the opportunity to select which sessions you’d like to attend virtually. It is up to you to decide which sessions interest you in a given time block and to attend those sessions as desired. You may attend as many or as few sessions as you want. Check out registration packages.

Will there be an opportunity to meet with exhibitors?

There will be a virtual exhibit hall with show specials and live company representatives ready to greet you. A virtual meeting can make networking more accessible than an in-person meeting. Instead of tracking down an exhibitor or representative in a large convention center, virtual conference attendees will have many opportunities for direct communication, instant messaging and impromptu conversations at the click of a button. Also, our virtual Exhibit Hall will remain active for 30 days after the meeting ends for continued connections. 

How do I register for a virtual event?

Register for the virtual event by selecting the “Register Now” option from the home page of yankeedental.com

Follow the on-screen instructions by filling out the information required to register. This process will register you with a badge number that lets us know that you should be receiving additional information regarding how to attend the conference via your computer or mobile device.

When will I receive the instructions for attending the virtual event?

Yankee Dental is working diligently to prepare for this unique experience and will send you the necessary instructions within a couple of weeks of the event. Make sure that the email address associated with your registration is accurate and up to date so that there is no delay in receiving our communications. 

Can my computer or mobile device handle the virtual event?

Most up-to-date computers and mobile devices such as laptops, desktops, and handheld tablets are capable of running the virtual event for you.

What do I need to do on day one of Yankee Virtual?

On the morning of the event, you will receive a reminder that will look a lot like the initial Yankee Virtual email that you will have received a couple of weeks prior to the event. This will also contain a link that will automatically login to your account and access the event page.   

Can I ask questions during the educational sessions?

We encourage you to ask questions at any time. 

Can I share my virtual conference login information with other members of my team?

For every registration to attend virtually, only one device (computer, laptop, tablet, phone) will be allowed to enter the virtual conference. The credits earned, the questions asked, and the polling conducted within that single login session are all tied to the account of the individual that purchased the virtual event. With that said, there is nothing stopping you from attending the virtual event and allowing your colleagues to enjoy the conference right next to you from wherever you are viewing the event.

Can I access and view recordings of any sessions from the conference?

Your virtual conference registration includes access to all educational session recordings after the event concludes based on the registration package that you signed up for. Don’t worry, you can view any sessions you missed out on as soon as the recordings for those sessions are made available. All recorded sessions will be available for you to access at no additional charge. 

How long will I have access to the virtual platform?

You will have access to the platform for 30 days after the event.
