I want to shadow a dentist over the summer. How do I find a dentist that will let me shadow him? I will be a sophomore undergrad student next year. I am from the Saint Louis area.

Try your own dentist first.

Call the office and ask do they allow shadowing. If so, "I'm interested in dentistry and I'm _____ university, blah blah..."

Is it time for some to start heeding the advice some are likely to give in 5 years?
