I’ve just been to Chicago for the annual Midwinter Meeting, which is attended by thousands of dentists. I was there as part of my job with Dental Tribune. We published three issues of an at-show newspaper, which offers news about the meeting and information about new products on display.
I wrote several articles on site, for publication in our daily issues. I interviewed a dental assistant from Rochester, N.Y., about special equipment that allows a dental practice to take digital X-rays. I interviewed an entrepreneur who has a mobile van that allows patients to have high-resolution diagnostic images taken. I also interviewed executives from a company that manufactures lasers that are used in dental treatment.
In addition, I wrote about an event conducted by National Children’s Oral Health Foundation: America’s Toothfairy, which is a non-profit organization that facilitates delivery of dental care to children whose parents cannot afford it.
Here are my articles as they appeared in print at the event in Chicago. Click on any of the images to see them bigger:
