POLICIES

General Program Disclaimer

The continuing education program of the Yankee Dental Congress is planned and presented by the Program Committee to provide attendees with relative topics, speakers, and presentations. Neither the content nor the use of specific products in a course should be construed as indicating endorsement or approval of the views presented or the products used by the Yankee Dental Congress. Speakers are required to inform participants of any financial, commercial, or promotional interest in a product or company that may influence their presentations. The Yankee Dental Congress will not be responsible for a speaker’s failure to disclose such interest. The Yankee Dental Congress encourages the attendee to make independent judgments as to the topics, speakers, and presentations as the content of the program is not reviewed, approved, or necessarily agreed upon. As such, you acknowledge that any and all actions taken by you are done so at your own risk and you further agree to hold Yankee harmless from any and all liability in relation to the same. Please be advised that courses, speakers, or scheduling may change without notice.
