    hey guys,
    u definately need compressor and dental delivery unit which is where your hand piece connects to... compressor provides air and it is carried via dental deliery unit to handpiece... what i know is that, this is atleast you need to start practicing.... i have couple of video DVD s for the preps from a well known training centre .... if that can be of your help.... also do you have any idea as what all preps should we prepare???...

    you dont have too waste your money on any classes for all this i think, it is just to test our skill , which you cant just improve in a month , the exercises for the interview will be give in detail when one gets a call for interview from colorado. so basicaly one needs to be skillful in himself...
    correct me if any information i gave is wrong....

    can anyone tell me which handpiece we should buy? There are many available like latch type, push botton...........
    I dont want to buy very expensive. So please advice.
    Is turbine comes with handpiece or we have to buy it seperately. Is it ok to buy handpiece from ebay( I saw push botton handpiece available for $90)
    Please help. I am very confused.

    Hey guys what makes you think that you all are invited for the colorado interview.I advise you not to waste your money on Duggans and buying all the stuff.Probably you should wait until you are called and then buy.So don't be overconfident be realistic.Do you guys know a person who got 96 got waitlisted in NYU. Think twice before you leap.
