Audrey Irish (DMD4),
Chair, Women in Dentistry Committee
On the 24th July the Sydney University Dental Association and the Alumni Society of The University of Sydney (DASUS) partnered with the Recent Graduates Committee of the Australian Dental Associations NSW Branch to host the 2015 Women in Dentistry Cocktail Evening.
Alumni, faculty staff, students and dental professionals attended to hear NSW ADA President, Dr Deb Cockrell, speak about her amazing and varied career. Dr Cockrell spoke about the importance of good mentors for personal and professional development, and that collegiality and support are an integral part of the dental profession. The Women in Dentistry Committee would like to thank Dr Deb Cockrell for giving up her time to speak at this event.
We had over 100 guests attend the evening, with quite a few alumni and staff having a wonderful time catching up with one another in a less formal setting. Students enjoyed meeting dental professionals and garnering valuable support and advice from these role models.
I’d like to give a huge thank-you to our sponsors the BOQ Specialist, who are specialist provider of financial solutions for dental professionals. Please visit their website at www.boqspecialist.com.au
