A&M Dental Interview Questions

Who was the tour given by?

“Keep doing what youre doing. The interview process went great and was enjoyable!”

“Use a conference room with tables. They gave us the presentation sitting down in a small room and the position was a bit awkward.”

“Presentations look much better with visuals (powerpoint). I would have preferred a table to write on instead of my lap.”

“The holding tank didnt have very good air flow. The little booklet of DFW attractions was a bit unnecessary — I could learn the same or more just googling. Also, most people didnt have anywhere to put it, since the admissions office did not provide a folder of some sort. I fail to understand why we were not put in a conference room, as we were at the other two Texas schools. No power points, no table/surface to write notes on during the speeches from Dr. Miller and the financial aid lady.”

“I have no suggestions for the admissions office. They are doing a great job. The admissions committee is really what sold me to this school. They are extremely friendly and responsive. I emailed Dr. Miller one time in the evening and she responded quickly the next day. Dr. Pierpont took a couple of days and Dr. Segura did not even respond.”

“None; very nice people and quick and helpful responses.”

Who should you consult about a career in dentistry?

You should speak to the predental advisor on your university campus, Admission Offices of Dental Schools, the family dentist, other dentists in general practice and those involved in the various fields of dentistry such as public health, dental research, etc. Observation in the office of a general dentist is required. Information is also available from the American Dental Association, (ADA website www.ada.org), and the American Dental Education Association (ADEA website http://www.adea.org/).
