“The Creative Dental Connections Speed Networking Event was awesome! This was my second time attending and each event gets better and better. I was able to connect with a variety of dental and medical professionals on all levels. I especially appreciated the open environment to share common experiences, laugh, and enjoy the company of great people. I also learned a lot from the CE course given by RDH Danni Gomes.

I met other professionals, such as doctors, hygienists and assistants. We all took turns discussing each other’s experiences, which allowed for great professional advice. Professor Gomes is an outstanding and innovative educator. She hosts multi-topic educational events that are informative and should be essential for all dental professionals.”

“I highly recommend Creative Dental Connections LLC for your CPR training class. The instructor Danni Gomes is warm and welcoming. She makes the class fun and interesting and provides all materials needed to learn adequately current CPR protocols. The class is adjusted to teach dental health professionals with examples of emergencies that could happen in a dental setting. And the best part along with your CPR course completion card, you also get 4.5 CE credits! Pretty awesome for a quick and fun learning experience.”

I am so grateful to have had the pleasure of being a student in Professor Danni Gomes class; who is also the founder of creative dental connections. With her help not only did I learn about being a dental assistant but also helped me find an amazing job in an office I can truly say I love working in. She is truly an amazing person with a heart of gold; not only has she helped me find a job but she gave me the confidence to succeed as a dental assistant. she continues to amaze me with her generosity and compassion she has for her students who she continues to help above and beyond the classroom.

“On ‘Bring a Graduate to Work Day’ I had the pleasure of introducing Ms. Rebecca Rosario- NYU Dental Hygiene Class of 2017-to the administrative side of academia. As a full-time dental hygiene faculty at Hostos Community College, students are unaware of the voluminous administrative work faculty are engaged in. Ms. Rosario and I discussed her career goals. I offered her my assistance for her future plans.
This was a wonderful event for a seasoned dental hygienist like myself and a recent graduate. Looking forward to participating in next year’s event. “
Julie Bencosme, RDH April 1, 2018
“My office has been using Creative Dental Connections LLC and Ms. Gomes for the last 3yrs. Her course is extremely thorough, and efficient . There is a lot of hands on practice and everyone walks away confident to handle a emergency afterwards. This year we added her service of reviewing the contents and use of the medical emergency kit. That training was excellent and we will start doing it annually with Creative Dental Connections LLC. “
Lana Rovinsky, RDH April 1, 2018
“I was a participant of the ‘Bring a Graduate to Work’ event. I truly enjoyed shadowing my mentor, Ms.Bencosme. She gave me so much insight and valuable knowledge that will certainly benefit me as I start my career as a Dental Hygienist. In the process I met other wonderful individuals at Hostos Community College. I was able to see a different aspect of what members of the profession have to go through to prepare students success in there studies in preparation of this exciting career. This event is truly a wonderful experience allowing an opportunity to network.”
Rebecca Rosario, RDH April 1, 2018
“My experience shadowing Dorrie was amazing. She was so patient and she made sure to answer all the questions I had. She gave me great and valuable advice. Her office had new technology I hadn’t been exposed to, so it was a great learning experience for me. Her co-workers were all very welcoming.
Thank you so much Professor Gomes for creating this program, it was an amazing opportunity for me to observe what is expected of a dental hygienist in private practice. “
Gracia Giron Rivas, RDH April 1, 2018
“I have been studying oral motor, feeding and OMT for over 20 years. Some of this was review and some new learning, but the true gem that I brought from the “Make the Connection” class was making the connection with nearly two dozen like-minded professionals that want to improve the lives of patients. The personal stories, the varying perceptions and the clinical knowledge will be something I’ll never forget!”
Robyn Merkel Walsh MA CCC SLP August 21, 2018
Danni Gomes hosted a course on “How Gender Plays a Role In Dental Care”, and it was phenomenal! I was able to receive so much new information I did not know before. The course was also intimate and very interactive. I highly recommend CDC events & courses to all professionals in the dental field!

Prof Danni has always been professional in everything she does. Recently attended a webinar about Covid- 19 and dentistry. Was informative, and helped ease some of the anxiety I had about returning to work as a hygienist. Highly recommend her!!!
