Educating Future Educators

At Harvard School of Dental Medicine, a small cohort of students study dental academia with the interest of possibly pursing dental education in their future careers. I am honored to be among those students, studying with the close mentorship of my academic deans. Even more so, I am excited to share the details of this program with YOU so that we can spread this innovative mentorship program to other dental and higher education programs! It’s time to educate the future educators (and offer exposure to a field many of us simply don’t know enough about :)).

THIS New Article is Out on Medium!

Let’s face it: the idea of a dental visit can be a lot to chew!

The heckling about flossing; the dozens of questions your dentist asks while wads of cotton sit between your cheeks and your teeth; the age-old question of ‘if I poke you, will you bleed?’ (Although, that last one gets me laughing every time as the patient.)

But those visits to the dentist are important! — and not just for their comedic value or the resultant sparkly, clean teeth 😊 Beneath the plaque and calculus, and monotone dictation of numbers for a chart, your dentist is evaluating your medical health. She is reading your teeth like a road-map, considering your oral and overall health today and over the past few months or years.
