“This was a very interesting and useful overview of dentistry and the dental industry,” said an attendee. “It was very informative to learn not only about dental procedures, but also the business of dentistry and dental school education.”

In addition to learning about the language and specialties of dentistry, the attendees were treated to significant time in the teaching lab where they practiced decay removal with hand pieces, applying acrylic fillings, conducting intra-oral digital scans, and learning endodontic root canal procedures.
“I’m new to dental and need to get up to speed as quickly as possible,” said Amy Ross, director of private brands at Benco Dental. “Several colleagues recommended Mini-Dental School and it did not disappoint. The most helpful parts for me were the lectures that covered specific areas of dentistry like implants, radiography and endo followed by actual hands on exercises. A great way to learn.”
