While in Boston for this year’s SDL-9 in early March, Dr. Tony Hashemian presented the use of social media in oral health promotion and education. During the five days of training, delegates develop their leadership skills and learn to use them effectively to advance oral health agendas and improve the dental health of children.
The Senior Dental Leaders (SDL) program has held seven annual conferences in London and the USA.

Over the years delegates have attended SDL from a variety of countries including China, Malawi, India, Malaysia, Saudi Arabia, Tanzania, Australia, South Africa, the UK, the USA, Mexico, the Solomon Islands, Canada and more.
