If you’re a dental student, the word “boards” is terrifying and immediately disagreeable. But don’t dismay when it comes to social media’s newest member: Pinterest.
Pinterest is like social media scrapbooking. It lets you grab images from all over the web and “pin” them onto boards that you’ve categorized. You can then comment, like or repin what others are sharing.
Currently, Pinterest is hot for weddings, hair styles, shortcut recipes and fashion. But you don’t have to be a 20 something fashionista to pin. You can really find any niche you’re looking for on Pinterest. Here’s a list of some boards to follow for dental pins:
- Operation Smile is on Pinterest. My favorite is the before & after smile board!
- Smile Train has a similar thing going.
- Here’s a board on dental hygiene with plenty of ideas for your peds clinic.
- And then there are the toothy boards that are just al little creepy!
