Pre-Dental Students – Dive into

Dentistry with University of Washington School of Dentistry – Spring Opportunity

Are you currently an undergraduate or high school student interested in becoming a dentist? Are you a predental student looking for an opportunity to boost your resume and learn the ins and outs of dental school? If you answered yes to any of those questions then we have the perfect event for you!

University of Washington School of Dentistry’s ASDA chapter is hosting one of its main predental events, Dive into Dentistry Day. This workshop gives you the chance to get hands-on experience and gain an insider’s perspective on life in dental school. This year’s Dive into Dentistry Day is going to be awesome! With current UW dental students and faculty running the show, you’ll get a chance to learn all about life at UWSOD. There will be a chance to meet our Assistant Director of Admissions, Dr. Sue Coldwell, and hear about how admissions work at UWSOD. We’ll teach you how to drill and fill a cavity preparation, sculpt a tooth out of wax, suture, take an impression, and ace your dental school interviews. By the time you’re done, you’ll be practically ready to work with your own patients! This is a great opportunity to learn about dental school, meet some fellow pre-dents, get all your questions answered, and build up those ever-important resum├ęs. Don’t miss out on this amazing opportunity!

Breakfast and lunch are provided. Please wear business casual or scrubs.
