International Academy of Contemporary Dentistry created the iACD New Speaker Podium Series to encourage a rising generation of dentists to develop practical, innovative solutions to tackle the many medical challenges that dental professionals observe daily from their interaction with patients.
If you have an ongoing research idea or a clinical best practice to share, we want to hear from you. And since ideas flourish when they are refined in a constructive setting, a credentialing committee consisting of a panel of Main Podium speakers will serve as mentors to evaluate the work of each presenter.
It is our hope that, as a New Speaker’s Podium participant, you will receive valuable feedback from leading experts in the field to refine your ideas and deepen your research. New Speaker Podium Competition Additionally, iACD will offer the following prizes to the top two performers:
First prize: $500 USD, a certificate of achievement, and one complimentary full conference registration for next year’s iACD Symposium.
Second prize: Certificate of achievement and one complimentary full conference registration for next year’s iACD Symposium.
Third prize: Certificate of achievement and one complimentary full conference registration for next year’s iACD Symposium.
The iACD New Speaker’s Podium also serves as a training ground for those aspiring to one day become regular presenters at the Main Podium of international conferences and symposiums. Recognizing that the field of dentistry is full of promising, young talents, iACD will extend to anyone who wins the New Speaker’s Podium three times the opportunity to present at the Main Podium in a future symposium.
We are looking to recruit passionate, aspiring young professionals committed to clinical and research innovations to participate as the first cohort of the New Speaker Podium competition.
