on the clinical experience, off campus rotations, and anything else you like or don't like about the program? also, do you get your own cubicle 3rd and 4th years? (i got two different answers when i asked students at the interview).
Blue Tooth said:we share cubes with a 4th year during D3 year (and vice versa). I never have had problems getting a cube in clinic, some days you have to wait 10 or 15 mintues but it's not a problem. As for clinical experience, I think it's fine. I have no complaints other than the types of patients who come to the dental school but you're gonna find that no matter where you go. School's not easy, it's a ton of work, but you'll find what you like and enjoy yourself. Then again, that statement applies everywhere else I assume. If you have anything more specific, lemme know.
Only if the wizzies are erupted. If not, then they're going to the OS. I doubt this is much different elsewhere.Biogirl361 said:okay, a few quick specific questions. How much (if any) experience do you get in these areas during pre-doctoral training at UM?
-3rd molar extraction
-placing crown on implants
also, how early do you start seeing patients for prophies, exams, sealants and stuff like that? when do you start learning to cut preps on the extracted teeth?
