ADA Launches Accelerator Series I


n early March, the ADA announced the launch of its Accelerator Series, an online, on- demand program designed to provide information tailored to the early career dentists’ unique work-life balance needs. The Accelerator Series stemmed from the ADA’s Women in


Dentistry program, which has uncovered opportunities where the ADA can better serve not just women dentists but all dentists. The program’s goal is to help position dentists for a faster road to success and covers topics such as the challenges of clinical practice, managing student debt, juggling responsibilities at the office and at home and maintaining personal wellness goals.
