CDHA Motivational Moments Presentations, sponsored by Waterpik®

Call for Submissions

Deadline: June 20, 2021

For the first time, CDHA’s national conference will feature “Motivational Moments” presentations, a variation on the popular TED Talks series that has captivated people around the globe.

Have you travelled an unconventional career path, overcome adversity or made a real difference in the lives of your clients? If you have a compelling message that matters or an inspiring story to share with others, consider submitting a brief video for the chance to be a "Motivational Moments” presenter at CDHA’s first-ever virtual conference.

Submission Guidelines

  • Submit a brief video (2-minute maximum) using your smartphone or computer.
  • In the video, describe yourself, why you chose dental hygiene as your profession, and share your inspirational story.
  • Just be yourself!

Note: video submissions should be submitted in English and must be no longer than 2 minutes.

Before the end of July, a panel of judges will select the top-rated submissions for presentation at the conference.

These selected speakers will work with a presentation coach, virtually, to learn how to deliver a powerful virtual TED-style talk. You will learn valuable speaking and presentation skills that you can use for the entirety of your career! Final presentations will be prerecorded and released as part of the conference programming.
