KADA is proud to announce that we will be starting a mentorship program for current dental students.

The mentorship will begin with an orientation session with presentations of General Dental Practice as well as ADA-recognized clinical specialties such as Endodontics, Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery, Orthodontics, Pediatric Dentistry, and Periodontics.

Then the students (mentees) will have opportunities to observe mentors in their private practice setting. Each mentee will contact any mentor offices on the list to arrange for clinical shadowing on their own time.

The goal of this mentorship program is not only to expose the dental students to various aspects of clinical dentistry but also to promote close personal relationships with practitioners as they mature in their career in dentistry.

There are currently about 20 mentor offices with various clinical specialties.

Attendance at the orientation is a pre-requisite to participate in the clinical shadowing. The orientation meeting is mandatory since Rules & Regulations, Introduction, Presentations of General Dental Practice, Endodontics, Orthodontics, Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery, Pediatric Dentistry, and Periodontics will be presented.

The orientation session is scheduled for Saturday, July 24, 2021 at 5 PM.

Location: The Dragon Chinese Restaurant, Koreatown
