FULL Joy!

Finding It, Living It, Sharing It

Jesus once declared, “These things I have spoken to you so that My joy may be in you, and that your joy may be made full”. (NASB) How can we seize this promise as it applies to our future careers in dentistry?

This year’s conference, FULL JOY! provides unprecedented opportunity for students to explore their future. Choose from two identical 3-hour conferences, each featuring 15 passionate and knowledgeable dentists. Each session will include an opportunity for questions related to personal challenges and concerns. As if that’s not enough, this event is offered at no charge to CMDA student members!
