“I believe that the cooperation with UNIDENT is one of the most productive. The company gives newcomers a wealth of opportunities for further development. For example, on 22 April, we will hold our regular congress titled Fairy DentParty — 2018, and this time it will be devoted to the pediatric dentistry. Not for the first time, UNIDENT will be a general partner of the event”.
To upgrade skills of young dentists IDA organizes regular
training events with the involvement of own and external lecturers. IDA
cooperates with leading training centres of the country and gives its members
the opportunity to attend seminars, courses, and workshops at a special low
price. The membership in the association
Inna Virabova, a surgeon dentist and IDA President, says:
— To date, we have over thousands of volunteer and preventive care projects, hundreds of seminars and Olympiads organized by the association and dentistry universities of the country. We have implemented our own projects and campaigns, such as Landysh donor project, under which hundreds of dentists and students donate blood for patients with maxillofacial pathology. We cooperate not only with dentists but also with other healthcare professionals. Thus, our volunteers conduct examinations at hematological centres and blood transfusion centres.
Moreover, among our partners are tens of orphan homes and
cadet corps where IDA educates children in oral health. IDA is a regular active
participant of exhibitions, congresses, and forums, partner
Just recently we have opened a window of opportunity: IDA members now may publish their clinical cases in UNIDENT Innovations and Practices! journal. Such cooperation will help some dentists to gain theoretical knowledge from articles of their associates and others to improve presentation and text writing skills, share experience with associates and further proceed with lecturing.
Many professionals participate in annual congress DentParty
As a head of IDA, Inna believes that the association has achieved its key goals for six years. This professional association united young dentists and future specialists, organised international practical trainings at world universities and medical institutions without agents, arranged a huge number of events in different Russian countries including unpaid ones.
The association members have access to the best events in dentistry, courses and seminars of Russian and world leading specialists and are afforded ample opportunities to accomplish their own objectives. However, IDA has many plans which will certainly be much appreciated by the association members, as new projects arise out of issues, problems, and ideas which concern all young doctors.
