SAID 33rd Conference

June 7-10, 2023

Omaha, NE
Creighton University School of Dentistry

The Society of American Indian Dentists will gather at the Creighton University School of Dentistry in Omaha, NE on June 7-10, 2023 for our 2023 conference. We have an exciting few days planned including a full-day, pre-dental workshop on Wednesday, June 7 just before our welcome reception on Wednesday evening at the Creighton University School of Dentistry Alumni Gallery. We will open with hors d’oeuvres and a local cultural experience.

At least 12 hours of continuing education, and outreach opportunities are scheduled. Remember to pack your sneakers for our annual fun run/walk through the beautiful Creighton University campus. Our annual conference banquet will be held at the Omaha Design Center where we will honor graduating students, as well as student and professional award recipients.

Native Chef, Anthony Warrior, will prepare a buffet feast for our annual banquet with traditional Native American inspired foods.  Anthony's experiences working for tribal nations has included studying and acquiring local traditional recipes, stories, and historical methods in food preparation and preservation.  His approach to cultural nutrition is interconnected with feeding the mental, spiritual, and holistic balance necessary to differentiate the total health needs of each individual tribal group.

The Keynote Speaker for the 33rd Annual Society of American Indian Dentists (SAID) Conference banquet is Billy Mills.  Billy is a 1964 Olympic Gold Medal winner in the 10,000 meters race. Billy helped found Running Strong for American Indian Youth and became the organization's Nation Spokesperson.  He is Oglala Lakota (Sioux) and grew up on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation.
