Dr Sunita Verma, Principal of Sparkle Dental Boutique Chiswick was asked to speak at the Young Dentist Conference 2010 at the Royal College of Physicians 2010 on Saturday 13 February, sponsored by Dental Protection, the BDA and BDJ.
The Conference was aimed at the needs of dentists in the early years of their career and Sunita was asked to speak in the `Finding Your Niche’ session and share her experience of how a young clinician can open a private practice and find their niche within the current economic climate.
Sunita says “It is the first time that I have been asked to speak at a conference and the thought was a bit daunting, but the idea of delivering thought provoking ideas, facts and practical tips to young dentists was greatly appealing. When I bought my practice, there was little help and advice for me and since then dentistry in the UK has gone through a huge change presenting a whole new set of challenges for young dentists today.”
“Speaking to a full house of 300 young dentists certainly caused a few butterflies in the stomach but what a great experience. My own Vocational Trainer, Dr Kooner who I started my career with was also at the event and it was great to have gone full circle.”
“Would I do it again? Public speaking and making a presentation is a skill that we do not normally have as dentists. This has been a great opportunity to share my experience and with a bit more practice, I’d certainly take up the gauntlet again.”
