The Very Dental Podcast Network

Voices of Dentistry is a terrific meeting for dentists at all phases of their career, including dental students! Al sat down with three dental students from Midwestern University College of Dental Medicine in Glendale, AZ. He is joined by second year dental students Andres (Andy) Palacios, Christian Putegnat and Valentin Meyts to talk about a wide variety of topics!

  • Al explains about dental school in the 90's and being a "new dentist" in the early oughts
  • Student bad is it and how well do they understand it? ($600k for school)
  • First patient experiences in dental school and how things work at Midwestern University
  • What are dental students looking at when they get out of school?
  • Residencies?
  • What coping skills have the guys developed?
  • Instagram dentistry isn't real
  • Don't compare yourself with others
  • Dental school is the time to DO STUFF! They have to fix whatever you mess up!
