The Expo is a pioneering event focusing on dental innovation and the future of the dental profession. Attendees will have the opportunity to connect with dental professionals from Northern California, attend more than 15 in-person presentations across two stages, engage in lively networking, and gain hands-on experience with cutting-edge technologies and materials.

The content is carefully curated to showcase emerging technologies such as digital imagery, 3D printing, machine learning, AI-assisted diagnostics and design, and more.

The Bay Area Dental Expo is produced by the Santa Clara County Dental Society in collaboration with a coalition of Bay Area Dental Societies including Contra Costa County Dental Society, Marin County Dental Society, Monterey Bay Dental Society, Mid-Peninsula Dental Society, San Francisco Dental Society, San Mateo County Dental Society, and Southern Alameda County Dental Society.
