One of my favorite resources for pre-dents is the dental school coach! Zia, founder of the website and mentor, helps pre-dental students by providing interview tips, personal statement reviews, help with the DAT, mock interviews, and much more. He also interviews successful pre-dents, current dental students, and graduated dentists to build a resource with all different insights, from people with all different experiences and backgrounds.
I used the dental school coach to prepare for all of my interviews – every video and tip was a huge asset in my application process. I highly recommend all pre-dents check out his website and YouTube page for true high quality mentorship!
In this video below, Zia and I sit down to casually discuss myself as a “successful applicant”. Things I talk about:
- My application and extracurriculars
- How I prepared for the DAT
- How I created my personal statement
- How I chose how many schools to apply to
- What I personally looked for in a program
- What my interviews were like (Note: I could not talk about my ASDOH interview because I have signed a non-disclosure agreement with the school)
- How to find a job as a Dental Assistant
- What I felt the most overwhelming part was applying to dental school
- Why I chose to create my blog
…and much more!
Thanks Zia for choosing to feature me and Denthusiast on your website and YouTube channel! I hope this video helps those of you who are on your application journey.
