Specialty "Dating" Offers Information

Specialty Dating

Despite “big” tests the following morning, several dozen OHSU School of Dentistry students participated in Dental Specialty Speed Dating on Feb. 18, sponsored by the school’s Alumni Association. 

“We don’t know a lot about what we’re getting into beyond dental school and it’s good to get feedback,” said first-year dental student Jennifer Reynolds. “It’s nice to hear different stories and ways to becoming a dentist.”

Dental students had the opportunity to talk in small groups with pediatric dentists, oral pathologists, orthodontists, periodontologists, endodontists, and more. Each small group conversation was 15 minutes and then dental students rotated to another specialist.

“I think I may pursue an AEGD (Advanced Education in General Dentistry) after dental school so I wanted to get information,” said second-year dental student Keith Argraves.
