National Dental Students’ Scientific conference (NDSSC) is an annual conference conducted by students, for students with the aim of encouraging students to interact, compete and build fellowship with peers from other dental schools in Malaysia. This year, NDSSC was organised by Penang International Dental College (PIDC) which was held on the 6th and 7th of May 2017 in Butterworth, Penang at The Light Hotel. The theme of the conference this year is “Inspire, Integrate, Innovate”. This theme presents the students an opportunity to be inspired by the distinguished speakers and will give a platform to interact and integrate with peers from other dental schools as well as learn to “think out of the box” with innovation in mind.
