The following documents are here to aid you in your shadowing experience. The material found on here will give you a general idea of some procedures you may see as you shadow and will give you a better understanding of how they are performed. In some cases, a dentist may not thoroughly explain some of their work or realize that you may not fully understand the process and that may negatively impact your experience. We are hoping that these will help aid you in your journey!
Here we have 5 of the major pillars in dentistry: Operative, Periodontics, Oral Surgery, Removal Prosthodontics and Fixed Prosthodontics. The information is provided via material from textbooks used in the dental curriculum of students on the District 4 Predental Committee. The material here will be updated every 6 months to reflect the need for change based on feedback.
Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns! We hope you have fun shadowing the wonderful world of dentistry!
