Dental Students Host Impressions Program

 

College of Pharmacy students participate in Impressions Program©

On Mar. 27, the Student National Dental Association chapter of NSU’s College of Dental Medicine hosted its second annual Impressions Program© with 76 students in attendance. The event began with a presentation featuring an introduction to dentistry, the university’s involvement in community dentistry, and the process of applying and being admitted into the dental program. One of the event sponsors, Kaplan University, discussed what the Dental Aptitude Test (DAT) is and what the exam entails. Kaplan also raffled off a scholarship for one of their DAT prep courses. Student National Dental Association members spoke to the participants on life as a dental student with respect to each year in dental school.

The participants took a tour of the school and observed and discussed a mock interview conducted by faculty. Lunch was sponsored by the Army Dental Corps, in which an Army captain gave a presentation on being in the military as a dentist and the scholarship opportunities available for dental school. The event was highlighted by a hands-on session in the simulation lab where participants learned how to make alginate impressions of typodonts and then how to pour them in dental stone.
