The 2019 Midwinter Meeting in Chicago

If it’s late February, that means a trip to Chicago for the annual Midwinter Meeting, held by the Chicago Dental Society. As part of the team of editors from Dental Tribune, I helped publish three issues of our at-show newspaper, called “today” — the last two of which were “live” issues that were printed overnight from on site.

My editorial assignments at the event included taking dozens of photographs for our photo gallery, a sample of which is shown directly below. An online version of the photo gallery is published to the Dental Tribune website (direct link here). I also attended a press briefing conducted by Henry Schein Dental and wrote an article (here), and I also attended the annual “Celebration of Smiles” event, held by America’s ToothFairy: National Children’s Oral Health Foundation and wrote about that as well (article here).
