AADR NSRG presented two oral sessions – Careers in Dental Research - What are my Options? and Practice-based Research Networks: Opportunities for Research and Evidence-based Dentistry. Also, students had a presence throughout the meeting and were able to attend a variety of social events with their peers and mentors, such as the AADR NSRG student networking reception, business meeting and the student and faculty advisor reception (sponsored by DENTSPLY International).
