Student Table Clinics

Apply Here by October 28th, 2022

What is a Table Clinic?

A table clinic is an informal table top presentation using oral communication and visual media to inform, clarify, and/or review material on a specific topic. You may call it a mini refresher course. A table clinic presents useful and timely information in an original, interesting manner. This information may be a technique; theory; service; trend; or expanded opportunity in the practice of dental hygiene and/or the broader realm of oral and systemic health. Your table clinic should be simple and direct with an element of action to stimulate attention and interest. A table clinic is not merely an exhibit of materials.

Guidelines for Student Table Clinic Presenters
  1. All table clinic presenters must be student members of ADHA. One to four student presenters are allowed for each table clinic. Professional dental hygienists are not eligible to present table clinics.
  2. Student table clinics will be conducted on Saturday from 1:00 – 1:30 pm in an open session format. Participants will circulate throughout the space to view the table clinics, listen to oral presentations and interact with the student presenters. Student table clinics are intended to provide an opportunity for students to network with the participants who are most interested in their topic.
  3. Table clinics should present information in an interesting and educational way using display materials, handouts and an oral presentation.
  4. Student presenters should remain with their table clinic for the entire session. Student presenters should be prepared to make an oral presentation not to exceed 5 minutes, answer questions and engage in discussion with the participants.

  6. One 6 foot covered table will be provided for each table clinic. All display materials must be confined to the top of the table. Display materials may not be placed on floor, in aisles or affixed to walls.
  7. Professional business attire is required. Clinic attire is not acceptable. Student presenters are encouraged to bring business cards to support networking opportunities.

  9. The use of patients or live models for treatment or demonstration purposes is not permitted. The use of sound devices of any type is not permitted.
  10. The number of table clinics accepted for presentation will be limited based on the size of the facility. Applications will be processed in the order in which they are received.
