Last month I attended, for the first time, the Greater New York Dental Meeting and it was impressive with a great number of dental team members and manufacturers in attendance. Part of this Editor-in-Chief ‘job’ with Dental Product Shopper magazine is attending these meetings which is the part I enjoy so much.
