Little Teeth Chat has Arrived
AAPD’s ONLINE COMMUNITY
little teeth CHAT
 
For the last few months you have been seeing announce- ments of AAPD’s new online community Little Teeth Chat. This is a private, safe and secure community. Ten topics have been chosen as Shared Interest Groups (SIGs). This will be an ideal place for members to share their knowledge, network with peers and support pediatric dentistry. Each topic has been as- signed a SIG chair as the subject matter expert.
A group of over 300 AAPD member beta testers have been testing Little Teeth Chat for the last few weeks, starting conversa- tions and having fun. Here is what they have to say:
 
"A great way for the AAPD community to share ideas. If you are not otherwise tied to Facebook but want to ask questions and learn from your colleagues, this is a great way to do so." – Erica Brecher
 
"I am loving this all so much. Thanks for this great discussion group!" – Kimberly Hansford
 
"I think Little Teeth Chat will be a great way to reach out to colleagues, especially to those who have a certain expertise, to answer clinical questions." – Patrice B. Wunsch
