America’s Dental Meeting® – ADA 2017 – hosted this year in Atlanta, Georgia aims to inspire all those in attendance later this week. With that in mind, the American Dental Association posed the question “What inspires you?” to those in the dental community, and shares the responses in its onsite guide (shown below).Screenshot 2017-10-16 15.21.33

During an Opening General Session, on Thursday, October 19 in Atlanta, ADA member dentists from across the country will share personal stories of how dentistry has allowed them to make an impact on their practice, family and community.

ADA Humanitarian and Distinguished Service Award recipients will earn recognition for their contributions to the profession.

Later in the week, on Friday, legendary quarterback Peyton Manning (shown at top) will take the stage as part of the Distinguished Speaker Series, discussing his time off the field that is dedicated to various foundations.
