The transition from dental student to practicing dentist can be challenging for many. It can take time to gain confidence, and it’s easy to feel overwhelmed with ramping your speed and improving your clinical skills. The PDS® Dentist-in-Training™ (DIT™) program helps accelerate the learning curve and navigate a clear path to success.
While interviewing for dental school, one of the questions that I asked enrolled students was: “Is there any time for extracurricular activities?” The question was one that I asked because I wanted to continue my commitment to running. Before arriving at dental school in August 2015, I had completed three full marathons and almost twenty half marathons. For many years, running was my outlet. Running gave me time each day to tune out my worries and release stress. It was my time to disconnect from the world and clear my head.
