AD-002 - Using Informal Networks: Mentoring Middle School Children for Dental Careers

Sunday, March 18
10:30 AM - 11:30 AM
Location: Osceola Ballroom B
CE: 1

Target Audience: Administrator

Learning Focus: Admissions, Financial Aid and Student Services

Dental Education: General Dentistry  

Underrepresented minority (URM) dental professionals and applicants to dental school do not reflect the racial/ethnic makeup of the United States, which is concerning, considering the U.S. URM population is expected to increase to 50% by 2050. Many suggest that early exposure is key to increasing interests among potential URM dental school applicants. This session will teach participants strategies for using informal networks to create opportunities for middle school youth to get early exposure to dental careers. This will be led by a practicing dentist and dental leader from a private dental school and an educational leader from an urban, public middle school.
