Inaugural Cocktail Party
The inaugural event of Women in Dentistry was a sell-out success. The evening commenced at 6pm and the ladies enjoyed welcome margaritas. Guests were thrilled to browse historical photos from the Sally Joyston-Bechal Study Group days, the group on which Women in Dentistry is founded. The sponsors for the evening included Mr Tom Mathers (representing Henry Schein Halas), Ms Julie Tattersall (representing Medfin) and Mr Bill Martin (representing Software of Excellence).
Dr Janice Kan gave a speech of welcome and briefly outlined the goals and mission statement for Women in Dentistry as Society. Dr Melanie McAlpine provided a vote of thanks to the sponsors with presentation of a bottle of Mumm champagne to the gentlemen and a bouquet of flowers to Ms Tattersall. A vote of thanks was also given to the president, Dr Janice Kan for her tireless work to ensure the success of the evening and Women in Dentistry as a concept through to realisation.
The evening concluded at 9pm and Henry Schein Halas generously closed off the bar tab. Preliminary feedback from attendees reflects the overwhelmingly positive response to Women in Dentistry as a concept and venture. The evening at Bob’s Bar was deemed a huge success by those kind enough to comment. Pictures were posted on the Women in Dentistry Facebook page.
