Tips & Tricks for CDA 2013

It’s that time of year again where we all make the pilgrimage to Anaheim for the California Dental Association’s Spring Session. Pre-registration numbers look pretty good, so that means lots of people mulling around the convention center and surrounding areas. This will be my 21st CDA and I thought I would share a few tips to make the CDA a bit more enjoyable.

  • Get there early! This is Southern California and traffic can be bad especially on Thursday and Friday. Allow extra time to get to Anaheim and find parking. Look for signs that direct you to the parking areas. The parking lot on Convention Way and Harbor is just a short walk away and less congested.
  • If you are staying at a local hotel, consider walking or see if the hotel has a shuttle to the convention center.  Save a few bucks on parking and get some exercise at the same time.
  • Arrive early as some of the courses fill up fast or some become standing room only.
  • Lunch options…if you don’t want to eat at the convention center, you can take a short walk off the property and there are plenty of places to eat that are less crowded and more affordable.
  • As for dinner…there are many places that are a short drive or walk away. Here are a few sites that will give you some ideas.   Anaheim Restaurants  *   Anaheim Garden Walk  or Yelp
  • Make reservations….NOW!!! With so many people in town for the CDA, these restaurants fill up quickly.
  • Wear comfortable shoes…walking to the center, classes and the convention floor in uncomfortable shoes makes for a miserable day.
  • Visit the convention floor…please remember that the exhibitors spend a lot of time, effort and money to have booths at the CDA. Walk the convention floor and see what they have to offer. Without the exhibitors…there is no convention.
  • Download the CDA Presents Mobile App for Ios and Android
  • Be sure to follow us on twitter @valleydental     #cdaANA is the official hashtag for the CDA
  • Stop by booth #1386 and say hello!

I hope that these tips will help make your CDA less stressful, fun and productive.

Enough about you….let’s talk about.me

Recently, I saw on a friend’s twitter profile, a link to his about.me account. Since I had never heard of about.me, I decided to follow the link and see what it was all about. About.me is a personalized website, think of it as a digital calling card. Their tag line is “About.me is the best way for people to find your content and learn about you.”  So I decided to give it a whirl…it was really easy to set up a free account and get started. I uploaded a background image and added some information about….you guessed it…ME! You can add links to your Twitter site, Facebook, Flickr, WordPress blog, etc. My about.me page can be found here

They even offer to make you 50 business cards based on your about.me page for free (you just pay a nominal shipping charge). As I started to think about it more, it is a great central point of contact for your friends or business associates. I have even started using my about.me address in my signature of my email and twitter profiles. I am going to imprint my about.me address and QR code on stickers and add them to the back of my business cards and on any literature or flyers I had out while out in the territory. I think it can be useful for salespeople when making “cold calls” on dental offices, where you just have a few moments to introduce yourself and your products to the prospective clients. With your about.me information on your card, the doctor and staff can learn more about the salesperson and company later, at their leisure.

As for dentists, I think it can be a great way for patients to get to know the doctor a bit better. They can see what hobbies and interests the doctor has and any other personal information they want to share. They can also have “Patient Referral Cards” with their about.me information that current patients can share with their friends that are quite possibly looking for a dentist.  Take a few moments and check out about.me and if you sign up and start using it, please leave a comment below with your about.me address, I would like to see how you will use it.
