The FDC department asked Dr. Robin Nguyen a few questions regarding our annual convention.
1. As a new dentist, why do you attend the Florida Dental Convention (FDC)?
I attend FDC because of the numerous resources the meeting provides. There’s always a wide array of continuing education (CE) courses to choose from and the Exhibit Hall is a great place to try out the newest dental products available. Aside from the educational component of the meeting, there are a lot of fun social activities to network with colleagues, meet new dentists and reconnect with old friends.
2. What do you see as the biggest takeaway from the convention?
The biggest takeaway from FDC would be the potential new relationships with other dentists and exhibitors — the value in those relationships is priceless.
3. What would you say to other new dentists thinking about attending FDC? Why should they attend?
As a new dentist, transitioning from school to real life can be challenging. What we learned in dental school is the foundation that we build upon as we continue in our profession. The FDC has numerous CE possibilities that will undoubtedly enhance our skill sets. It is a great place to meet with other new dentists that may face similar challenges and to learn from each other.
4. What is your favorite part about attending FDC?
My favorite part about attending FDC is the networking possibilities. It is a great place to reconnect with your dental colleagues and to meet new dentists.
