In conjunction with the University of Illinois at Chicago College of Dentistry, CDS will host a Mentor Brunch during the 2013 Midwinter Meeting. The event will be held 11 a.m.-1:30 p.m., Thursday, Feb. 21, in Room CC10 of the McCormick Place West Building. Dentists, dental students and pre-dental students will kick off the season, meet with each other and spend an informational afternoon together as they build relationships that will be beneficial to both the student and the dentist. Look for information in the November issue of the CDS Review (aka the Preliminary Program).
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 second class of Midwestern University dental students included, CDS needs more mentor dentists than ever before to ensure a one-to-one match of dentist and student. If you are interested in becoming a mentor, find more information here. Or if you have questions, email Lisa Hosley, assistant director of member services, or Joanne Girardi, director of member services.
