The New Dentist Coach answers the 5 questions of a current 2nd year dental student looking to apply to Orthodontic residency. Listen and watch as Dr Darwin provides tips, strategies, and answers to the following questions: 1. If I plan to visit a few programs this summer, but do not intend on applying to residency programs until the following summer, how do I go about following up with program directors to ensure that I am maintaining communication/rapport? 2. In conjunction with the previous question, how often should a follow up be done? (I believe theres a thin line between being aggressive with showing interest and being annoying) 3. How many programs should an applicant consider applying to? 4. Can student dentists attend the AAO annual session/would this be an appropriate time to meet program directors and let them know that I am interested in their program? 5. Any general suggestions or words of advice as I continue on this journey?
