Editorial for November 2020 – DRDCA2020 Speaker Special Issue 2
I welcome you all to the biggest scientific fiesta of all time – the DRDCA 2020 International! This month, the world is witnessing a one of a kind event – a 30 – day long digital dental conference with scientific sessions, fun contests and digital awards! As Scientific Chairperson, I’ll be glad to give you an overview of the scientific sessions of this conference happening right now, spanning over the entire month of November 2020.
This 1 month-long event is witnessing a wide range of knowledge sessions on all Thursdays and weekends i.e. Saturdays and Sundays of November. For the rest of the month, contests are being conducted. Sessions are divided into morning and evening sessions. For weekends, morning sessions are conducted from 11 am – 1 pm IST and evening sessions, from 4 PM to 6 PM IST. All Thursday sessions are evening sessions only i.e. 5 pm IST onwards.
Since it is a purely digital conference, you can watch all lectures in the comfort of your home, wherever you are! There are no fees or hidden costs for attending any of these lectures. One big advantage is that all the scientific sessions are approved by Karnataka State Dental Council ie KSDC and IDA Bangalore, and so you will get CDE points for each session. By attending this one single conference, you may get upto 40 CDE points, all at no cost! Your e certificate will be emailed to you with your CDE points within 2 weeks after the conference ends.
