Congrats to those of you who recently matched! The stress of that process has, hopefully, subsided and now it’s time to think about what happens next. This time of your career is critical. Staying involved in organized dentistry can provide that extra support you need.
ASDA’s Annual Session, March 4-7 in St. Louis, will bring together students from every U.S. dental school to vote on association policy and elect leaders. Beyond the business of the association, it’s an opportunity to connect with your peers, learn more about hot topics in dentistry and celebrate chapter successes.
I am at the start of my third year, wondering how I am going to survive through all the clinical requirements, when I am asked to be a student representative for the New Dentist Committee of the Southern Nevada Dental Society. I hesitated at first, having so much on my plate already. In the end I decided it would be a very good opportunity to get involved in a different aspect of dentistry. A year later, I can officially say I am glad to be a part of this group.
It’s that time of year!! Interview season has commenced. As you go off to your residency interview (or maybe you are a predental student preparing for the big interview you’ve been waiting for), you want to make sure you are prepared in all capacities, including your outfit. You probably have asked yourself at one point, “How can I stand out?” or “What will set me apart from the other candidates”? There is nothing wrong with standing out and making a great initial impression, you just want to make sure you do it in the right way. Read on to find out how!
