Two keynote speakers will grace the stage at the New Dentist Conference, aiming to inspire new dentists to new heights.

New dentists — dentists who graduated from dental school within the past 10 years  as well as dental students — will hear Dr. Miguel Stanley on Thursday and Marko Vujicic, Ph.D., on Friday.

Dr. Stanley's address, titled "Are Consumers and Technology Driving the Future of Dentistry?," will explore how consumer expectations and digital dentistry, along with the sharing economy of our profession, are shaping the future of dentistry.

Dr. Stanley will share his philosophies on the global community of dentistry, dental artistry versus profit and how dentistry is changing lives. He is the host of the first National Geographic documentary on dentistry.

Dr. Vujicic's keynote, titled "The Generational Shift: 5 Things Dentists Need to Know About the Changing Dental Patient," will bring attendees the latest and greatest data showing the shifting paradigm young dentists are going to grapple with in their practice careers.

Dr. Vujicic is chief economist and vice president of the ADA's Health Policy Institute, where he is responsible for overseeing all policy research activities.

Prior to joining the ADA, he was with The World Bank, where he directed the global health workforce policy program.

The rest of the New Dentist Conference will provide participants an ideal opportunity to network and focus on issues that concern them as new dentists, while allowing them to take advantage of the overall ADA FDI World Dental Congress experience.
