The Eighth District Dental Society's Mentor Program is currently under revamping. Typically, the program consists of member dentists who sign-up to be Mentors to D4 Dental Students from UB. We pair Mentors and Students based on specialty interest of the student. We host a Kick-Off Event, where we introduce all participants to the Program and announce the pairings. We also host a Close-Out Event, to wrap up the Program and evaluate its success. Throughout the duration of the Program, we encourage Mentors to communicate with their Students regularly.
The purpose of the Mentor Program is to give Students the opportunity to ask questions that aren't typically covered in their dental school courses, to visit a dental office and see how rooms are setup, and to discuss real concerns.
