  • Student Verification Formrequired for student non-member registrations

  • To register as a member, you must have activated or renewed your 2018 membership by the time you register. If you wish to join the Association to take advantage of the reduced membership registration fee, please pay your dues at the time of registration. Membership applications are available online at www.iadr.org/membership. If your membership dues payment is not received and processed by the start of the meeting, you will automatically be charged the full non-member registration rate for the meeting. This additional charge will be deducted from your credit card. If your original payment was by check, you will receive an invoice payable on site at the meeting.
  • If you register online, you will receive an immediate email confirmation of your registration. The information supplied online is passed through a secured server. Please note that credit card payment is required for those registering online.

  • Accompanying Persons: Accompanying persons are non-dentists, non-researchers, non-IADR/AADR members who may be traveling with a meeting delegate and who have no scientific or educational interest in the meeting. Meeting delegates' students, lab technicians, colleagues, past IADR/AADR members, co-authors, exhibitor personnel, dental product company employees, etc., do not qualify as accompanying persons and are required to pay the appropriate registration fee if they wish to attend. Accompanying persons are not eligible to earn continuing education credits and will not receive a certificate of attendance for the meeting.

    If your accompanying person wishes to hear your presentation, he or she must register and pay the $55 fee and receive a special color-coded ribbon on site. The ribbon will admit an accompanying person to for one day of the meeting only and will not be honored at any other time during the meeting. Anyone who wishes to attend more than one day of the meeting is considered to have more than a "personal" interest in dental research and will be required to pay the appropriate fee.
  • AADR does not allow meeting registration substitutions. Registration fees may not be transferred to another person. Anyone unable to attend the meeting after paying must cancel his/her registration. The registration fee will be refunded if the request is received prior to the cancellation deadline date. The new registrant must then register separately and pay the appropriate registration fee. If you are a presenter substitution, the same policy applies. The original presenter must register for the meeting and then cancel (refund amount will depend on when the cancellation occurs) before the substitution can be processed. The new presenter must then register and pay the applicable rate.
  • Financial disclaimer: AADR reserves the right to review each registration for the appropriateness of the selected registration category and make any necessary corrections. For example, a full-time faculty member that chooses the Accompanying Person or Student rate will be corrected upon review. AADR reserves the right to charge his/her credit card the difference in registration fees.
  • Letters of invitation: All invitation letters will be sent to the registered delegate via email as a PDF attachment. An original letter can be sent by regular mail upon request on the registration form; please allow 4-6 weeks for delivery. Expedited shipping of original invitation letters is available for an additional charge. Please contact registration@aadr.org to request express shipping or select this option during your registration process. Invitation letters will only be issued if registration is paid in full, and are only available to registered delegates and accompanying persons.
