  • dental schools can be political and have their own drama
  • generational differences of dental students then and now
  • "Just in Case" vs. "Just in Time" learning
  • Communication styles for today's dental students
  • Youtube as an instructor
  • The fulfilling benefits of working at the dental of them is working with the students
  • Are they still teaching amalgam?
  • What kind of digital stuff are they doing in the dental school?
  • What does she miss about private practice?
