Student Stories

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

“The most surprising aspect of dental school for me would have to be the amount of precision and fine attention to detail that it takes to critically analyze your work.  I seem to always be caught off-guard by how I can view something in one way, and the student or professor right next to me can see something that I totally would have missed or overlooked.  We all work and see things differently, and that’s what makes this journey of learning so exciting and rewarding.”
