For the second year I have been asked to mentor dental students at my alma mater, Temple University. Temple University’s Kornberg School of Dentistry is the only Dental school in the country with such a program. It’s called “Mentoring for Life,” and is intended to help guide dental students through school and transition them into the profession.
Once again I was paired with a very diverse group of students. Temple University has the distinction of being one of the most diverse campuses in the nation! I must say though, that regardless of their background, these students also have a lot in common. They are bright, hardworking and inquisitive. They are also nervous about their futures, much like I was at their age.
As I look forward to a year of getting to know my young charges better, I can’t help but feel that we are all in good hands going forward. The future of dentistry is bright with such capable young minds positioned to lead the profession. And the public should also feel comfortable knowing that the dentists being trained today will be the best the world has ever seen!
Any questions about this program or your oral health feel free to contact me or the staff at my office, Dr. Laurence Stone in Doylestown, PA with any questions or concerns or to schedule your next visit so we can talk more about this.
