In school, dental students receive in-depth training in general and specific areas of dentistry — including treatment options and patient care. Upon graduation, they leave with the technical skills needed to be good dentists. However, the life skills they need to be successful business owners, team leaders and people managers may not always be developed. The National Leadership Conference (NLC) provides leadership training to dental students across all years. Attendees can create customized schedules based on their personal knowledge, experience and interests, in order to benefit them as dental students and future practitioners, as well as leaders in organized dentistry. The event also includes a dental expo, where attendees meet with vendors and learn about services, products and emerging technologies in the field.
Due to the State of Illinois and City of Chicago prohibitions on large gatherings, ASDA is no longer able to proceed with NLC. Learn more about ASDA’S alternative virtual conference, VLC, coming this November!
