While you await interview invitations,
enrollment offers and final admissions decisions, it’s a
great time to start thinking—and imagining!—
your first year of dental school. First-year dental
student Chione Daniel gave us a vivid picture of her
first few weeks on her journey to a dental career: “The
first year of dental school actually began over the
summer. We were given various assignments, such as
creating a personal code of conduct, reflecting on our
upcoming Gross Anatomy experience, completing a
StrengthsFinder assessment and—the most ‘fun’ assignment
of them all—a soap carving exercise! Unfortunately, we
were not able to see our classmates’ teeth before
submitting our own, so I was in for a rude awakening.” Keep

Now is a great time to research and secure
a shadowing opportunity, volunteer position or internship
for the next semester or summer. The hands-on experience
garnered from shadowing (i.e., observing a practicing
dental professional and gaining a sense of his or her
daily routine) is tremendous! A great place to start may
be your own dentist or dental hygienist. Most likely,
they are familiar with you and your family and may be
willing to allow you to shadow. If not, often they can
recommend other practicing dental professionals from
their own professional circles. Let’s get it done!
Social media is often viewed as a blessing
and a curse. Thoughts, photos and videos are shared
instantly and widely— friends, family and even complete
strangers may see posts within seconds. Recent news has
revealed the long-term effects of social media and
unintended consequences—particularly for posts made in
haste—for young people seeking employment or educational
opportunities. Here are a few tips and reminders on
developing and managing your social media profiles.
Future dentists, start preparing early! The process is a breeze with the ADEA
Dental School Explorer, a companion resource to the ADEA
Official Guide to Dental Schools. Use your laptop,
tablet or smartphone to gain access to the profiles of

Bundle and save! A subscription to the online resource
and the 2017–2018 ADEA Official Guide to Dental
Schools is just $50—a $15 savings!
We asked dental school students the burning
questions on all applicants’ minds: “What do you think
future dental students need to know about dental school?”
“What is the best part of being in dental school?” “What
best prepared you to be a dental student?” Gain great
firsthand advice to put your best foot forward!
