New dentist already planning ADA 2016 trip
Las Vegas — ADA 2015 – America’s Dental Meeting wrapped just over two months ago, but Nevada dentist Dr. Emily Ishkanian already knows what she wants to do this year.
“I’ll definitely be at America’s Dental Meeting in 2016 in Denver,” said the dentist, an alum of the University of Nevada, Las Vegas School of Dental Medicine. “Who would miss a meeting in Denver — such a great city and the chance to meet up with my friends.”
Dr. Ishkanian’s plans to attend ADA 2016 were buttressed by her experiences in Washington, D.C., at ADA 2015. It was the third annual meeting she had attended since she graduated from dental school in 2010, and each one has spurred her excitement over her career. She also attended the New Dentist Conference, held in conjunction with the annual meeting for the first time.
“The meeting in Washington, D.C., met my expectations as the location had so much history with so much to do outside of the meeting,” she said. “The courses that were offered were useful and, most importantly, I was able to reconnect with friends that I’ve made throughout the years by being a part of organized dentistry and the American Dental Association.”
As a new dentist — a provider who has been a dentist for less than 10 years — Dr. Ishkanian also enjoyed being able to attend many facets of the New Dentist Conference. “There were a lot of opportunities to connect with old friends and make new ones,” she said. “I spent time in the New Dentist Lounge getting to know other new dentists across the country, as well as being able to discuss key issues with our Board of Trustees.”
