Badges are not required for admission to ADAA courses, but are required for admission to the exhibit floor.

A charge of $10 will be added to the course fee for both ADAA Members and Non-members. Those registering on-site for ADAA courses will also have to register at the CDS registration desk if they wish to obtain a badge and badge holder, required for admission to the exhibit floor, and to obtain a general program. There is no CDS registration fee for members of the Illinois Dental Assistants Association. Illinois ADAA members, be sure to bring your membership card for free CDS registration on-site. All other assistants, even if members of other ADAA state components, must pay a registration fee to CDS for badge and badge holder.
