NYU College of Dentistry

On January 14, 2020, New York University College of Dentistry students hosted John Dewey High School students enrolled in the Career Exploration and Work Based Skills class. A team of six current graduate level students led by peer tutors Carmen A Espinal and Muller Karger under the leadership of Dr. Eugenia Mejia discussed personal reasons for choosing this particular career path. Carmen can be quoted as saying “providing immediate relief to people with dental related pain can bring immediate gratification”. Additionally, the students and Dr. Mejia discussed the importance of communication and problem solving skills both in college and professional dental settings. This visit concluded with a tour of several laboratories located in the David B. Kriser dental center.
