CDS Meetings & Events
The CDS Mentor Program seeks member dentists to mentor both dental students and pre-dental students in Illinois, primarily from the Chicagoland area. With a third class of Midwestern University dental students taking advantage of this invaluable resource, CDS needs more mentor dentists than ever before to ensure a one-to-one match of dentist and student.
In conjunction with the participating Illinois dental schools, CDS will host a Mentor Luncheon during the 150th Midwinter Meeting, Thursday, Feb. 26.
Dentists and dental students will kick off the season, meet with each other (in some instances for the first time), and spend an informational afternoon together as they build relationships that will be beneficial to both the student and the dentist.
If you are interested in becoming a mentor, please complete the appropriate form. Or if you have questions, email Lisa Hosley, assistant director of member services.
