“We have an opportunity to learn from each other. I can learn the struggles that a new dentist (faces) day-to-day so I am well-prepared when I graduate. At the same time, (my mentor) can learn about the struggles we experience as dental students.” – LaJoi Wiggins, Mentee from ECU School of Dental Medicine
The NCDS Mentor Program helps connect and build lasting relationships among practicing dentists and dental students. By providing students exposure to the side of dentistry they won’t learn in the classroom, mentors are simultaneously given insight to the challenges facing tomorrow’s dentists.
