“Wow, what an experience! I absolutely loved the Mini-Dental School in Baltimore. Thank you again for putting this together,” said Midmark Dental Marketing Communications Account Manager, Kelsey Schmiesing.

Participants gained an appreciation of the training and skills that their dental professional customers receive. The two-day, intensive session covered a range of topics including:

  • The history of dentistry
  • Dental anatomy
  • Practice specialties
  • The expanding practice choices and alternatives available to graduating dentists

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.”
