Alumni and affiliate events offer opportunities for networking and catching up with friends

Dr. Lu

Catch up with old friends and make new ones at dental affiliate and dental school alumni events at SmileCon in Houston, Oct. 13-15.

"Building connections at every stage of our careers is key to strengthening our dental community," said Dr. Daryn, Lu, D.D.S., a member of the ADA New Dentist Committee and new dentist member on the Advisory Committee on Annual Meetings. "A big part of organized dentistry is that personal connection, the conversations that eventually move past dentistry, and the people you meet grow into lifelong friends. And in dentistry, you need that."
