Hello, I have a question regarding dental shadowing and experiences. I had shadowed my family dentist for ~20 hours this past May and have been working as a dental assistant since this past June (~ 190 hours). I know 100 hours of shadowing is the requirement in many dental schools, but can hours of working as an assistant replace the requirement of shadowing? I was seeking for shadowing opportunities, but many dentists turned my request down due to the COVID. I'd appreciate any input!
