Hi everyone. This summer I plan to get plenty of hours of dental job shadowing to put on my resume for when I apply to dental schools next year. My question is, what is the best way to contact a dentist and ask for shadowing work? The career center at my school has been worthless to me so I am just going to contact people myself. To anyone who has had this experience, what is the best approach? Call the office? Go straight and ask? And then what should I say? I also see some dentists in public (church, sporting events, etc.). It isn't that I don't have a clue what to say or that I am scared or anything. I guess I'm just curious how you all did it. I want to make the best image as possible. Thanks guys!
