Join Us for the 2019 Star of the North!

Welcome to Minnesota Dental Association’s 2019 Star of the North Meeting! Nationally Known…Close to Home is again the place to get it all.  The ability to get CE online is convenient, but at the Star of the North, the dental professionals who attend can take advantage of camaraderie with colleagues and former classmates.  Here, we can talk about our practices and learn from one another, discussing things we can use and bring back to our own practices.  This friendship and exchange of ideas, you can’t get sitting at home, and these face-to-face interactions continue to make our meeting grow.

The Scientific Session Committee hears your requests and reviews many pages of evaluations from our attendees.  This year we have over twenty-five new speakers presenting for the first time at the Star of the North!  We are thrilled to offer something for everyone on the dental team each and every day of the convention!  Whether we are showcasing an experienced speaker or highlighting a new voice, you can be sure they are the top of their game.  You will notice the courses have varying start and end times – offering flexibility to help you tailor your schedule.

The exhibit hall will be open all three days for you to talk face-to-face with over 250 exhibitors and learn about the latest advances in dental equipment and products.  Take a chance to win great prizes by playing our Passport Game or by stepping into the Cash Cube!  Relax at our new relaxation massage station and join us for happy hour on Thursday from 4 to 6 pm.

The committee is excited to bring back our popular Keynote Session for 2019.  Sergeant Dakota Meyer is a United States Marine Corps veteran and recipient of the Medal of Honor.  He will address attendees on inspiration, motivation, courage, leadership and believing in your self.  You won’t want to miss this!

The 5th annual BIG Party has become the place for everyone to let their hair down on Friday night.  After a day of CE, grab a bite to eat at one of Saint Paul’s nearby restaurants and then come back to join us for some music and dancing to this years’ band…The Purple Xperience, a 5-piece Prince and the Revolution tribute band!  Get ready to wear something purple!  Make plans to stay over on Friday night and then catch a class or two on Saturday before heading home for the rest of your weekend.

Get your team excited and planning for our 2019 Star of the North!  Follow us on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter to receive updates on all the unique content we have planned for you.
