  • 1. Tips for Choosing the Right Dental Health School The Canadian Academy of Dental Health
  • 2. Introduction If you’ve decided to become a dentist or any other type of dental expert, it’s for a reason: you want to help your future patients to the best of your ability by restoring or preserving their oral health. But, to do so, you first have to follow quality training that will teach you all there is to know about the discipline and that will make a skilled specialist out of you. In this presentation, we will show you what factors to pay attention to in order to choose the right dental school for you.
  • 3. Location First of all, are you ready to travel far away from home if it means you will get better training? The first thing that comes to mind when searching for a school to learn a trade is to look close to where you live… that’s understandable. But if the level of teaching is much higher in another state/province, wouldn’t you agree to the effort and make that sacrifice? You also want to make sure that it’s a city you see yourself living in. You will be spending quite a few years there, so you don’t want to make your life miserable by choosing a location you absolutely abhor, because that would just impede your learning experience all the same.
  • 4. Acceptance Rate Another criterion to take into consideration is the acceptance rate of the school. Depending on your grades, you will have a varying degree of choice in selecting where to spend your next years. In this regard, you want to be optimistic and have high ambitions, but also keep realistic. No point in applying to the very best, most prestigious schools if you barely passed your tests. Oftentimes, the acceptance rate will be directly correlated to the reputation of the institution.
  • 5. Facilities Are the facilities cutting edge? How many chairs do they own to practice on? What about the labs and the teachers/assistants? All these variables will greatly influence how much hands-on-experience you can get and if you’ll be able to get closely monitored and helped throughout your course. If theory is crucial, you also want to make sure that you’ll get enough time to practice in facilities that will provide you with the tools and support you need.
  • 6. Class Size If you want to pick a school where there will be enough assistants to guide you and enough chairs & equipment to help you practice, you will also need to pay attention to the class size as that will also hugely impact your chances of getting more support. As long as that number stays within the 2 digits, you should be OK. With that being said, class size means nothing taken on its own; you should always consider that variable in relation to the other aforementioned parameters.
  • 7. Course Structure At first, it might seem to you that – as all schools teach dentistry – you will get approximatively the same cursus wherever you go. However, depending on the institution, neither the theory nor the practice will be equivalent. All schools do not teach in the same manner and you’d be well advised to learn the methods of the school you intend on joining. Whether it be lecture or more problem based, the teaching may not suit your learning style. Get the information before making any decision.
  • 8. Cost Last but certainly not least, the tuition and fees will also weigh heavy in the balance. Even though you may benefit from a scholarship or have access to financial aid, the cost of your schooling can unfortunately not be ignored altogether. Also, you need to take into account that, oftentimes, the cost may play a part in the acceptance rate as, the costlier the school, the lower number of applicants it will see.
  • 9. Conclusion Choosing the right dental school for you isn’t rocket science. It just takes some time, some thinking and some preparation. But if you take into consideration all the factors we just shared with you in this presentation, you should easily find the right fit for you.
