We all are aware of the overgrowing number of dental events in Saudi Arabia, and how closely are sometimes arranged. At SaudiDent.com we have recently raised the topic of the lack of coordination between dental events organizing committees that might led to less interest in their events or weak attendance. I have seen several events where many of their CE Courses went though tough time as few or no dentist participated in those CE Courses, despite the shiny name of the speakers. Several companies have raised this issue to me as to discuss the topic via SaudiDent.com as to deliver their frustration messages that their marketing budgets won’t stretch further to accommodate those non-controllable events and funding demands. Dr. Ahmed Al-Qahtani the President of The Saudi Dental Society, has sent his message in this regard via e-mail opening the topic for positive interaction among dentists participating in Saudi Arabia. We at SaudiDent.com have taken this topic further into Facebook and Twitter and started a hashtag #SDevent to positively participate in this vital topic affecting all dental professionals. We encourage everyone of you speak up and help us to deliver the right message in order to get things back into the right track.
I would like to thank Dr. Ahmed Al-Qahtani for his initiative and extend my appreciation to you all for your valuable inputs.
