New Dentists

A "new dentist" is a dentist who has graduated from residency within the last ten years.

Our purpose is simple: Build a network of new dentists so that we can act as a resource and support group for each other.  Sometimes this takes the form of a mixer at a local establishment.  Other times it is coming together at a CE event or our statewide new dentist conference. It can even include hopping on a bus and going to a Buffalo Bills game or wine tour together.  Whatever it is, we are all at a very unique point in our careers, and it's nice to be surrounded by a group of people who understand what you are going through. 

 So please, join us at our next get together.  You may find your next practice opportunity...or just a great group of friends.
