Three's company at New Dentist Conference
April 19, 2017
— Three is better than one.
Not just one but three people will be the keynote speakers at the New Dentist Conference, held in conjunction with ADA 2017 – America's Dental Meeting at the Georgia World Congress Center in October.
The three presenters are all popular TED/TEDx speakers. TED, founded in 1984, is an organization that features conferences, events and online videos under the slogan "ideas worth spreading."
The speakers — Mel Robbins, Jay Parkinson, M.D., and Chris Bashinelli — will present on successive days of the New Dentist Conference.
The motivational speeches are included in the price of registration for the New Dentist Conference. The schedule is:
- Ms. Robbins will speak Oct. 19 at 9:30 a.m. A former lawyer and CNN contributor, Ms. Robbins is a best-selling author who is perhaps best known for delivering one of the most popular TEDx Talks in the world: "How To Stop Screwing Yourself Over."
