Dental students, postgraduates, residents will come together for the Scientific Poster Sessions on Sunday, November 29th, at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center to present their research and share findings with one another and attending dental professionals. This session, held annually at the Greater New York Dental Meeting, is an important part of the its educational program and the Organization Committee’s focus on peer exchange and scholarship.
This mission shared by THE NEXTDDS, which has similarly highlighted dental student scholarship, and has focused on connecting students from dental schools across the U.S. Since its launch, THE NEXTDDS has posted over 1,200 peer-reviewed articles, instructional videos, and diagrams with users, and today there are over 60 groups on the website supporting peer-to-peer communication.
Representatives of THE NEXTDDS have attended the poster sessions yearly to meet with student researchers, to explore their findings, and to help spotlight these activities. This often enables poster presenters to share pertinent research on a broader scale. Last year, for instance, a team from the Department of Periodontology and Implant Dentistry at New York University College of Dentistry shared their poster entitled, “Utilizing the lateral wall of the maxillary sinus as a donor site for autogenous block grafts” in the Scientific Poster Session at the GNYDM. They also discussed the approach and related casework with THE NEXTDDS attendees, ultimately sharing their work within the Fall 2015 edition of THE NEXTDDS | Magazine. We encourage you to review the peer-reviewed article developed from the poster contributed by Almutairi et al.
Their research was ultimately delivered to over 14,000 dental students via THE NEXTDDS, and a similar opportunity exists today. If you are presenting poster findings either at the 2015 Greater New York Dental Meeting or future dental meeting, perhaps you would like to explore a similar path as the team from NYUCD. If you’re interested in learning more, simply download the Almutairi feature and/or complete the form attached and THE NEXTDDS will contact you to provide submission guidlines, to discuss further, and to answer any questions you might have regarding the process or timing.
We thank you for your scholarship and look forward to hearing from you. Have a Happy Thanksgiving from all at THE NEXTDDS!
