World-renowned speakers from UK, Australia, Switzerland, Germany, Hong Kong and Malaysia graced the event to update participants on the latest techniques in dentistry. Hands-on workshops were also conducted. Though i didnt get to attend ;(
In addition, over 100 dental trade exhibitors were on hand showcasing their latest dental products.
This year, my kind and generous TPKN (Dental) agreed to sponsor my registration fee, transportation and accomodation, Yippie!! With out wasting any time, i contacted my dear friend Tika in Hosp Sultanah Aminah, JB - told her to ask for a sponsorship jugak - so we could jumpe each other and rock the convention! LOL
I met lotsa friends there - ada yang joined Min of Higher Education, ada yang lost weight/gained weight, got a tattoo, got a naval pierce (if you're reading this - i didnt mention your name hokey!!), ada yang dah quit Min of Defense and joined Min of Defense, ada yang dah ada private practice (and got rich!!), ada yang converted - Alhamdulillah and all kinds laa.. I had so much enjoyment!! Catching up was never that satisfying - seriously!!
