Establishing Professional Relationships for a Lifetime
This pilot program in partnership with the MDA seeks to integrate UNE dental students with Maine dentists. Students will be partnered with a Maine dentist who has mutual interests. The relationship will introduce students to the dental community, provide shadowing opportunities of various specialties, share knowledge of how a dental practice operates, insight into difficult cases, and much more. This will as give dental practices that are not involved with externships the opportunity to connect with UNE students.
