The Indiana University School of Dentistry ADEA Chapter Presents:

Dental Day

“A Day in the Life of a Student”

April 13, 2019

Welcome to the Indiana University School of Dentistry. We are incredibly excited to give you the experience of a “Day in the Life” of a dental student. While designed to pique your interest in dentistry, this day is also valuable in helping you determine if this field is right for you. To accomplish this, the day focuses on facilitating a hands-on learning environment surrounding the clinical applications of dental school.

Throughout the day, we hope to peel back the curtain and reveal the actual art and science behind dentistry. We intend to provide you with a better idea of what it takes to be a dental student, boost your confidence, and make you a more competitive applicant.

Students attending the “Day in the Life” Pre-Dental Experience will have the opportunity to learn the following in a state-of-the-art pre-clinical simulation lab:​

  • Prepare Class I cavity occlusal preparations using a high speed handpiece

  • Restore cavity preparations with amalgam

  • Restore cavity preparations with composite

  • Make impressions of typodonts and pour them in stone

  • Wax teeth to proper form and function using instruments and a Bunsen burner

  • Create a bleaching tray from your impressions 

  • Suture Lab - practice your suture technique!

  • Develop hand skills and a working knowledge of clinical dentistry

  • Have access to current dental students attending IUSD for a Q&A session

  • Hear a presentation from the IUSD Office of Admissions
