The ADA announced that “Crazy Rich Asians” actress Constance Wu will headline the 2023 SmileCon in Orlando, Florida.

The American Dental Association (ADA) announced that actress Constance Wu will kick off SmileCon 2023 in Orlando, Florida, on Oct 5. Wu will share her personal journey and speak about wellness, one of the key themes at this year’s SmileCon.

SmileCon 2023 will take place Oct 5-7 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando. Registration for the meeting opens June 7.

Most known for starring in the romantic comedy hit “Crazy Rich Asians”, Wu received a Golden Globe nomination and a Critics Choice nomination for the role. Wu is also known for her career-launching work as Jessica Huang in ABC’s critically acclaimed comedy series “Fresh off the Boat” and was honored as part of the TIME 100 Most Influential People in 2017. The series made Hollywood history as the first American Network TV show to center on an Asian American family in over 20 years.

Wu recently released a memoir titled “Making a Scene”, an essay collection that recounts her experiences growing up in suburban Virginia and navigating her early career as an actress, falling in and out of love, and discovering her self-identity.

“We are thrilled to have Constance Wu join SmileCon to address and inspire our ADA community, who like Ms Wu, are passionate about their craft,” said George R. Shepley, DDS, ADA president. “Her words will be a vital reminder to all who hear them that taking care of yourself is the first step in sharing your talents with others.”
