We’ll bring you dental news, current events, and clinical pearls to the palm of your hand.
..with a little added humor and satirical stanzas, of course!
The Tooth Bank is a nonprofit organization made up of a community of dental students, dentists, and volunteers working together to provide current and future dental students crucial resources to help them succeed and make life in dental school a little more manageable. These resources will include student-driven webinars and videos for clinical techniques, National Boards help, and a jar of extracted teeth that will be integral to practice along with these resources. Dental schools currently represented on our board are: the University of Pittsburgh, Nova Southeastern University, the University of Maryland, Tufts University, New York University, the University of Florida, and LECOM.
Dental school is one of the most challenging academic programs in the United States, demanding that students absorb a huge amount of complex and critical information as they prepare for their careers as dentists. Often, students can find themselves overwhelmed with the difficulty of the curriculum, and lack of access to the resources, like extracted teeth, necessary to comprehend and practice some of the more difficult subjects in dental school. Our goal is to change that by creating a nonprofit organization that will provide students with an array of resources and educational tools they can utilize, and extracted teeth will be integral to this.
