I think the best person to ask is Yah-E. However, he just started Dental school so he may be really really busy. You should PM him, I know he went to one enrichment program at Marquette.

Also, enrichment programs are catered to minorities...but you should ask him.

Hope this helps,

No, I don't think enrichment programs are primarily for minorities. I went to a week-long introduction to careers in dentistry last summer at OHSU, and there were all sorts of people there ranging from juniors in highschool to college graduates. The one thing, though, was you had to apply to get into the program relatively early (like march or april) to get in. Other than that, it was a great way to talk to current dental students, hear lectures from professors, and get hands-on dental lab experience.

Definitly, if your state dental school offers something like that, you should do it. It shows you are interested, and gives you a very broad overveiw of what dentistry offers.

Good luck!
