Recent Graduates

ADA NSW represents the views of young dentists through the Recent Graduates Committee (RGC) and holds specific events and functions to enable recent graduates to network and gain CPD hours. There have been a range of initiatives introduced over the past few years as a result of the work of the committee and in response to your feedback.

Recent Graduates Committee - appointed members 2016-2017

 

Recent initiatives

  • A regular RGC column in NSW Dentist every month that our committee members write, about the various issues impacting on young dentists.
  • The ADA NSW pilot mentoring program (ADAPTS), spearheaded by committee member Dr Melanie Patney and assisted by our immediate past ADA NSW President (and current ADA NSW Council Chair) Dr Deb Cockrell
  • The RGC Facebook page
  • Maintaining social connections with our recent graduate members through our recent graduate lecture series twice a year: these lectures have an interactive panel consisting of different dentists from various professional fields – in June a series of presenters spoke on Experiencing the Best and Worst of Dentistry, with accompanying videos. 
  • Three CPD courses this year specifically targeted to our recent graduate members on the topics of crown lengthening and pharmacotherapeutics.
  • Continuing good relationships with the student presidents of both CSU and USyd - the RGC provides input to the ADA NSW final-year student information days to inform students of their professional obligations and help them transition into the ‘real world’ of dentistry.
