The Kansas Dental Association held another successful Real World Transition Brunch event on Friday, April 7, 2017 at the Sheraton at Crown Center in Kansas City, MO, in accordance with the Midwest Dental Conference.
In addition to the UMKC dental students in attendance, over 50 Kansas dentists and their team members came to offer practice opportunities. The KDA also invited many professional representatives from across Kansas to provide students with information on insurance, financial planning, and other areas of dentistry.
Booths were set up by our event sponsors: Aftco Practice Transition Management, Guardian Insurance, and UMB Bank, as well as KDHE Bureau of Oral Health, Wichita State University Advanced Education in General Dentistry (AEGD) program, Johnston Fiss Insurance, Tax Favored Benefits, and three public health clinics.
Kevin Robertson, Jennifer Jones, and Niki Sadler, of the Kansas Dental Association, also provided students with information on ADA/KDA membership and the Kansas Initiative for New Dentists (KIND) scholarship and loan forgiveness program.
Each year at the KDA's Real World Transition Brunch, students who visit with dentists and professional representatives can enter to win a $200 gift card to the Country Club Plaza. Congratulations to Michael Myers (UMKC School of Dentistry class of 2017), our winner from this year's event!
