Due to the spread of COVID-19 and the need to ensure the health and well-being of our members and attendees, the Board of Directors of the Association of State and Territorial Dental Directors and of the American Association of Public Health Dentistry, have decided to cancel the 2020 National Oral Health Conference.  As you know, the conference was scheduled for April 4-8, 2020 in San Diego, California.  There are no plans to reschedule the 2020 NOHC.

For all those registered for NOHC, you will receive a full refund.  Also, for those who have registered for the weekend workshops, a full refund will be issued.  There is no need to for you to send an email to the NOHC office regarding the cancellation of your registration as this will be done automatically.  Refunds will be processed within 4-6 weeks.  If you paid via credit card, the refund will go back to the same card.  If you paid by check, NOHC will issue a refund check.  For those who already cancelled and received a partial refund, we will process the remainder of the refund within 4-6 weeks. 

Please make sure to cancel any personal arrangements you have made such as hotel stays and transportation.  Note that for the host hotel, any guaranteed reservation not cancelled 48 hours in advance of the scheduled check in date Pacific Time will be subject to a penalty. 

We are profoundly aware of the many people who make NOHC the meeting we have grown to look forward to and come to so enjoy.  To the many ASTDD and AAPHD member volunteers who have worked on planning various aspects of the conference – we thank you for your time, expertise, and vision.  Thank you to all the speakers, moderators, roundtable presenters, and poster and oral presentation presenters for all the work you have put into the abstracts.  Thank you to our sponsors and exhibitors for your support of this meeting; the NOHC office will be contacting you separately to share additional information.  Finally, to the many dedicated members of AAPHD and ASTDD and to others who have registered for the conference, we thank you for your decision to attend the 2020 National Oral Health Conference, (NOHC) and for your continued support. 

Please, stay safe and healthy during the coming months and take care of one another!
