    Get a head start on dental school by getting a sneak peak into the world of dentists with Boston Leadership Institute’s new one-week Intro to Dentistry program. Students will be introduced to the dental school environment and explore the career opportunities available. Students in previous years dove into the basics, such as intraoral anatomy the Perceptual Ability Test, the portion of the Dental Admissions Test that challenges your perceptual acumen!

    After the basics, students learn how to take and interpret radiographs, learning how to identify abnormalities. Someone is in pain – can you determine why?

    Do you ever get self conscious when your dentist whips out your chart? What are they looking at?! You’ll be given your own “patients” and learn to examine their dental history. Have they been keeping up with their oral hygiene? Have they been brushing their teeth twice a day? What about flossing? These are all things you’ll be able to determine!
