One of the useful features of THE NEXTDDS is its Groups page created to enhance the user experience and connectivity. These groups allow you to connect with peers in your dental school or organization. Outlined below are features of THE NEXTDDS Groups that enrolled students can access right from their Profile pages.
EASY AND IMMEDIATE ACCESS TO YOUR SCHOOL GROUP
When you enroll in THE NEXTDDS, you are placed in your university’s or organization’s group page. From your Profile page, you can join or leave groups and invite your peers to your groups.
PRIVATE GROUP MESSAGE BOARD
This message board can be used by only group members or THE NEXTDDS Administrator. Members can post important information about classes, campus events, meetings, and just about anything else they want to quickly communicate to all other group members.
Each group calendar is populated with the details from the school’s academic calendar (test dates, fundraising events, school holidays, etc.) as well as other events of interest in the dental community.
MEMBER DISPLAY ON THE GROUP PAGE
Each member has the opportunity to display his or her name, school and contact information on the group page, as well as a profile picture. These options (that a student can decline for privacy) are helpful for networking should a member choose to feature that information.
Groups provide you with many benefits and an instant connection with the enrolled dental student population. If you’re interested in serving as the Administrator for your dental school group or would like to form a group focused on your interests, you are welcome to contact us at [email protected]. Your peers, classmates and connections could be just a click away.
