Just spending time [at the Patient Education Conference] with people who knew exactly what I was going through, who knew the instantaneous fear and rage that goes along with each new lesion, who were discovering how to find the shady spots at high noon, was an amazing comfort.

On October 12, 2018, I participated in the IPPF Dental Day as part of the 2018 Patient Education Conference. Dental Day was hosted at the UNC Adams School of Dentistry by Drs. Donna Culton and Ricardo Padilla. As a dental student, I found this to be by far the most exciting and enriching experience of my dental school education to date.

The 2016 Patient Conference has already come and gone. It was an amazing experience for attendees and presenters alike. This year’s event focused on the importance of peer support and expert research, and there was a special emphasis on oral care. The conference was full of learning, laughs, and the formation of life-changing bonds.
