The Student Forum is held in conjunction with the Advisory Committee Meeting. The Student Forum is an opportunity for members to talk to dental students that have used your companies products in the Innovation Center without any faculty present. These Forums have been very insightful providing uncensored feedback on ergonomics, student experience, and student’s perception of products used.
Several times throughout the year, students select a product or topic related to their experience in the Innovation Center to create a student presentation about. These presentations are then presented to fellow cohorts and reiterate the experiences had with CRET member company’s products used in the Innovation Center. The Directors share these presentations with CRET members and have proven to be insightful and provide a fresh perspective from a millennial’s standpoint. Such presentations have sparked CRET members to further look into product development and innovative ways to improve products catered to your future consumers.
