Dental Residency – 2018-19

Dear Colleague,

We are very pleased to present the speaker program for the 2018-2019 season of the Fairfield County Dental Club. This year’s program features five full-day programs—including a very special team event featuring Amy Doneen & Bradley Bale, authors of Beat the Heart Attack Gene, which will be held at the Trumbull Marriott—as well as two evening treatment planning sessions and one bonus evening lecture. The expertise and diversity that is deeply-rooted in this season will truly encompass a multitude of disciplines and bring together topics and concepts that previously we may have never considered. We are looking forward to the educational lectures and the interesting and thoughtful discussions and commentaries.
We look forward to seeing you at our upcoming events! Mark your calendars today—you will not want to miss this year’s program!
