Letters: Millennial students
January 21, 2019
I thoroughly enjoyed the My View Article in the Dec. 10, 2018, ADA News "The Four Millennials You Meet in Dental School."
As stated in the article, this has been the case even before this millennial generation. I graduated 30 years ago and this was true then, too.
My observation is that this also holds true for the dentists out in practice today. Especially how it relates to continuing dental education, the philosophy of dental practices and the quality of care given to patients.
Another thing I have noticed is that there is not necessarily a correlation between the type of dental student one is and the type of dentist one becomes.
There is a definite need for mentoring beyond dental school to mature, grow and shape dentists.
