ASDOH & MWU AGD Student Chapters host bi-annual Student Conference

The AGD student chapters at the Arizona School of Dentistry & Oral Health and Midwestern University College of Dentistry came together on Sat. Jan. 28 for their bi-annual CE conference.

Instead of sleeping in on a Saturday morning, over 30 students woke up early on a Saturday morning to learn and gain knowledge and skills.

Dr. Mark Malterud traveled from Minnesota to speak to the students about "Becoming a Super Generalist". He shared how his experience with AGD and quality CE has allowed him to provide more services to his patients! Ms. Allison Williams-Collier shared advice on the importance of patient communication. She discussed strategies on creating a meaningful patient-doctor relationship. Dr. Mai-Ly Duong facilitated an active discussion on the important role that clinical chart notes play in the provision of dental treatment. She discussed the specific components of a dental clinical note and legal obligations a dentist has in regards to record keeping. Dr. Michael Johnson demonstrated the unique role that photography plays in treatment planning of patient cases.

It was definitely a weekend you didn't want to miss!

The students' next conference will be Saturday, April 22. If you'd like to support the students by volunteering your time to lecture about a dental topic you're passionate about, please email us

Both schools are also raising funds to cover travel and lodging of students to attend the 2017 AGD Annual Session in Las Vegas on July 15-17. They will be hosting Mugs & Morals CE course on Friday, March 3 - this course meets BODEX standards. Please consider joining us for this course and supporting the students.
