Peachtree Smile Center Dentist Promotes Diversity in Dentistry at Hinman Dental Meeting

ATLANTA, March 13, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Georgia Dental Diversity Group and Dr. Evis Babo will hold its annual “pre-dental conference” at the Hinman Dental Meeting on March 17-19 at the Georgia World Congress Center & Omni Hotel at CNN Center. Dr. Babo has been active with the Georgia Dental Diversity Group since its formal founding in 2007.

“Last year, the Hinman Dental meeting successfully brought together more than 21,000 attendees,” said Dr. Evis Babo, an Atlanta dentist with Peachtree Smile Center. “This event would be incomplete without a robust discussion on diversity, especially as it applies to prospective dentists. The Georgia Dental Diversity Group is proud to provide a forum for these conversations.”

The Georgia Dental Diversity Group began as an informal lunch meeting 20 years ago. The Group continued to meet informally to network and talk, but without a set meeting schedule. In 2007, the Northern District Dental Society and the Georgia Dental Association approached the Group to discuss the possibility of formalizing the meetings as an official “Diversity in Dentistry” group. The Group was renamed Georgia Dental Diversity Group.

The Georgia Dental Diversity Group holds an annual “Pre-Dental” educational seminar for prospective students at the Hinman Dental Conference. This year, the pre-dental educational seminar will take place on March 19, at 9 am.

“Our pre-dental educational seminar at the Hinman Dental Conference is an opportunity to educate prospective students on the rewarding benefits of a dental career,” said Dr. Babo. “It is also an opportunity to expand dental career opportunities for all individuals, regardless of ethnicity, race or gender.”

In 2007, the Georgia Dental Diversity Group held its first pre-educational seminar for approximately 40 student attendees. By 2015, the seminar had grown to over 150 students. Prospective attendees are encouraged to register in advance at www.hinman.org. Pre dental students get free registration for this event. A special thanks to the Hinman Dental Society Board of Trustees for providing the support for this event.

Dr. Babo is an Atlanta dentist who provides comprehensive general dentistry and cosmetic dental services at Peachtree Smile Center. For more information call 404-605-0359 or visit http://smile-center.net.
