2023 Keynote Session:
Friday, April 29
11:00 am – 12:00 pm
We all remember the moment when, on February 21st, 2018, in PyeongChang, South Korea, Jessie Diggins lunged at the finish in an epic, come from behind victory to secure a historic first ever Olympic Gold Medal for Team USA’s Women’s Cross Country Team. Join us to learn how Jessie went from small town Minnesota to making sports history.
Along with days of intensive education sessions to improve your dentistry skills, come learn from Jessie about pushing yourself and your team further than you thought you could, hopefully with some sparkles and a smile. After all, at the Star of the North, we certainly know the power of a smile!

Continuing Education Credit Options
Free CE Opportunities
A Table Clinic is a 5- to 7-minute tabletop demonstration of an educational topic of clinical or practice management interest to dental professionals that can earn you FREE CE credits. Attendees walk from table to table after each short presentation. Table Clinics will take place on Friday, April 28.
Star One-hour Lecture Series
The popular STAR Lecture Series features five different speakers on Friday, April 28, discussing different topics. Each presentation will last one hour with a 15-minute break in between. Credit will be issued based on the number of courses attended or viewed.

For Verification & Portfolio
According to the Minnesota Board of Dentistry rules, it is the responsibility of the individual dental professional to preserve a record of their CE activities. Every attendee who earns CE credits to meet professional development requirements should print a copy of their transcript. Transcripts are available online for up to six months after the meeting (older transcripts can be requested via contacting Eleventh & Gather). File the transcript in your professional development portfolio as proof of your continuing education activities at the Star of the North Meeting.
Tips for Easy Verification
The Star of the North CE Verification system helps you to keep track of your professional development/CE activities at the meeting, but remember these tips! When you register, include the individual state license number of ALL licensed attendees to ensure CE credits are granted for EACH person. Codes are announced at the conclusion of every CE-eligible session. Space will be provided in the onsite program book to record the codes. Partial credit cannot be granted and if you leave a program before the code is announced, you will forfeit any CE credits.
