What do young dentists think of YDC?

We're pretty chuffed by the feedback we've received. Here's what past attendees think about our young dentist conference.


“Dr. Chris Ho had a great presentation style, and his content on prosthodontics was really helpful for me.”

Hannah Milne
Young dentist

“The environment at YDC was non-intimidating, and I can implement Dr. Mark Evan's tips immediately.”

Julia Tarnay
Young dentist

“I really enjoyed socialising with colleagues at YDC 2017 and fantastic choice of speakers like Chee Chang and Chris Ho! Good job YDC organisers!”

Clinical Photography Workshop

We're also running an intimate clinical photography workshop in Melbourne, on 21 July 2018. Learning clinical photography can help reduce patient skepticism, expand your skillset, and increase case acceptance. Young dentists have told us that they're wanting to take better patient photos, so we've managed to secure Australia's leader in clinical photography, Dr Peter Sheridan, for this workshop. We're keeping it really small, to increase the conversation and learning for the attendees, so check it out!

Key Focus Areas Include
  • Choosing the right equipment
  • Techniques when photographing patients
  • Communicating results with your patient
