About 80 first year students from The University of Sydney’s first year Doctor of Dental Medicine gained a valuable insight into the profession at an inaugural event.

The ‘Explore the Australian Dental Association New South Wales’ event saw students meet ADA NSW staff and tour the clinical training centre at the organisation’s St Leonards offices on Sydney’s north shore.

They also discussed opportunities in mentoring and volunteering offered by the organisation, met ADA NSW Communications staff and discovered more about the organisation’s Library and other information resources. ADA NSW Group General Manager - Business Development Abby Corrigall said it would help further prepare undergraduates for life in dentistry.

“ADA NSW’s overarching goal is to  help our members become world-leading dentists,” she said.  “This starts with undergraduates. We wanted to be proactive and let undergraduates know that we are with them every step of their professional life. CPD is also vital to our members’ knowledge as dental professionals, so it is vital we let undergraduates know the opportunities open to them.”

The students visited the organisation’s podcast studios and explored networking opportunities at the event, which took  place on Friday, April 16. Prizes included Apple AirPods, Apple music subscriptions and other gift vouchers were donated by sponsors Guild Insurance and Cutcher & Neale at the event.

“The past year has shown it’s vital  for the dental profession to unite,” Ms Corrigall said. “ADA NSW is always investigating new ways to best represent and help our members. We thank everyone who came along and helped make the event a terrific success.”
