Success Through Wellness:

2021 ADEA Allied Dental Program Directors’ Conference


As a program director, you know that your self-care and the wellbeing of faculty, staff and students are critical to a successful program, especially now more than ever with the COVID-19 pandemic. The 2021 ADEA Allied Dental Program Directors’ Conference—the only conference for allied dental program directors, by allied dental program directors—is your chance to recharge and build a healthy work mindset to help your program thrive.

Stress management. Meditation. Office Yoga. Emotion Management. We know what we should be doing to boost performance and productivity. But with as many demands and new challenges that we face, how do we prevent the day to day stressors from taking over? How do we find balance for ourselves and promote a wellness culture for our program?

You have sharpened your leadership skills and built exceptional toolkits. You have developed the framework for your most successful, innovative program. Now is the time to focus on YOU, so that you—and your program—can thrive!

Let’s make “in the moment” more about practicing mindfulness and less about putting out fires. Come together with fellow program directors and experts from inside and outside of dental education to embrace Success Through Wellness during the 2021 ADEA Allied Dental Program Directors’ Conference!
