As a new dentist, your needs and concerns may be different than that of your colleagues who graduated over ten years ago. This page is for you, to provide you with the tools and resources you need to help you get started in your dental career and navigate some of the challenges that new dentists face.
Whatever it is, we’re hear for you. Contact the District Office with any questions at 585-385-9550 or firstname.lastname@example.org to reach the Executive Director, Becky Herman.
You may also reach out to our New Dentist Chair, Dr. Vince Marino at email@example.com with questions or ideas for continuing education or social events.
