    hey all,

    This is a page that gives a thank you to the Dentist that allowed you to either volunteer w/ or shadow as you were finishing or still finishing your pre -dent studies.

    My Dentist is Tarek Zaki. http://www.zakidds.com/. Dr. Zaki is a well accomplised Orthodontist who recieved his DDS from Columbia and was once the President of the Tidewater Orthodontics society!! His office rocks! Flat screen TVs over every operating bed, a big one in the front room and pictures upon pictures of underwater shots w/ fishes. (He's a fishing nut! and loves his boat!) His staff loves me...and I think one of the girls has a slight crush on me. :)

    He's hilarious and rrreally down to earth...and he improved my smile. Not bad. I can shadow him anytime I want and volunteer with procedures. He's a great inspiration.

    He might be a great guy, but his website is awful. In Firefox, the menu on the left is all jumbled and the words overlap.

    i was about to point that out, but thought it wouldn't be nice.

    the "Welcome to our website!" has a line going through it as if it was marked off. not sure if that was the intended effect :0

    i've seen amateurs with better websites. he needs to shell out some $$$ and get a real site :0

    Family is there for telling you that you're the best even when you quite honestly are not. I come to this forum for honest and accurate info. That's the approach I take to posting also.

    Wow, I think the OP didn't post this thread so we could critique his mentor's website.

    Yes, but someone clearly needs to wave a skunk in front of this orthodontist (or at least his website) ...

    Does the orthodontist read this thread?
    You might call him or email him if it bothers you so much :)

    So his website isn't great...woopty doo...I guess that's a make it or break it for some. I judge a mentor based upon his or her character and skills as a dentist. but I don't know..that's just silly ol' me.

    Does anyone else have a mentor they'd like to give a shout out to? Thats the point of the thread ya know :)

    I had a lot of help from the dentists i shadowed. One in particular. Now I'm working for him until I start school. Great guy, great dentist.
