20,000-person dental conference in Atlanta canceled over coronavirus

The Hinman Dental Society's annual conference in Atlanta has been canceled due to growing concerns over the coronavirus, according to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

The 108th Thomas P. Hinman Dental Meeting was scheduled to be held March 19-21 at the Georgia World Conference Center and Omni Hotel. More than 20,000 dental professionals were expected to attend the event.

"Our concern is not only for the health of everyone involved, but also the quality of event that we can deliver with the current logistical challenges we are facing," the dental group said in an online statement March 11.

The Hinman Dental Society has scheduled its next conference for March 11-13, 2021.
