What’s one piece of advice you’d give to enrolling students?

“I would advise all enrolling dental students to understand that dental school is going to bring challenges never encountered before. The most difficult—and coincidentally the most rewarding—part of school is working in the simulation lab. There isn’t really anything that can train a pre-dental student to prepare teeth and mount casts, so anticipate a learning curve. The lab work comes easier for some people, but I assure you the talented and patient Ostrow faculty will work to develop your abilities so that one day you will be among the most elite dental clinicians.”
