Student Stories

What’s been the most surprising aspect of dental school for you so far?

“I’ve been very surprised as to how involved art is in dentistry. Every tooth is different from person to person. From the shapes of the teeth to their size, the grooves, their line angles and everything else in between, there’s a definite sense of individuality. Being able to visualize these intricacies has given me a greater appreciation for the aesthetic aspect of dentistry.”
