Courses for New Dentists

New Dentists – MWM Just for You!

To help you sift through all the terrific courses at the 2020 Midwinter Meeting, we’ve put together a “highlight schedule” to help new dentists plan a day at the meeting. The courses below are broken down day by day, by morning and afternoon. Of course, the list is not comprehensive but is meant to highlight courses of particular interest to the New Dentist: techniques, new products, and business management. We hope you find it helpful!
