Dr. Wendy Holder, a member of the National Dental Practice-Based Research Network, attended our virtual meeting and had this to say:
"The organizers of the National Dental Practice-Based Research Network 2021 Annual Meeting managed to transform “just another zoom conference” into an amazing interactive event which transcended the virtual platform and created opportunities for interaction while captivating the audience.
The speakers were prepared and presented with clarity, results from past and ongoing studies while pointing out future studies that we would need to actively pursue to continue our progress. My experiences with breakout sessions over the last 18 months have been mixed at best, but the PBRN nailed them. It was interesting to hear the perspectives from so many of the participants, who weren’t shy about respectfully challenging the positions of others. Ryan, our host, encouraged some regional competition which quickly filled up the chat boxes. I even learned about the “Gator Chomp” but am still convinced the “Big Dawg’s Bite” is much more effective.
Kudos again to the organizers of a great event. You managed to create a genuinely interactive experience for an eclectic and diverse group despite the virtual platform."
