Forty-two NYUCD students participated in the 84th Annual Greater New York Dental Meeting held at the Javits Convention Center in November, giving the College a strong presence at one of the nation's largest dental expositions.

Fourteen of the 18 students participating in the Dental Student Table Demonstration were from NYUCD, and students from the College took four of the five top prizes in the research competition.

Dental hygiene students also were major contributors to the event. Twenty-seven students from the AAS and BS programs in dental hygiene, under the direction of Ms. Winnie Furnari, Clinical Assistant Professor of Dental Hygiene, partnered with the Greater New York Dental Meeting to provide on-site oral health education for public school children. The students demonstrated toothbrushing and flossing techniques and provided tips on eating healthy and avoiding foods high in sugar.
