It’s never too early to steer students to a career in dentistry. The UF College of Dentistry got a jump start for the Class of 2027 when 38 second graders from a local school visited the college for some hands-on fun.
Organized by the college’s D.M.D. Class of 2011 and spearheaded by David Cardman, the event included a range of experiences for the “recruits,” plus pizza for lunch and some face time with The Mighty Molar. There were small group exercises where the children got some great hands-on experience with dental anatomy, dental radiographs, and composite restorations.
“We fed them lunch, taught some cool stuff about dental health, did some great activities, and best of all, we had a blast. Im proud of my classmates for the effort they gave and the result we attained,” said Cardman.
