I’m almost half way done with dental school, and I’ve dealt with a variety of faculty throughout my education thus far.
Some professors are obviously very strict and others are more easy going, and I definitely would be more of the latter when it comes to handling students. Ever since working as a tutor in both high school and college, I really want to work part time in a dental school, either giving lectures or helping in the sim lab or clinic.
For dentists who work part time in academia, what’s been your experience? How did you get hired part time? Also kind of a silly question, what were your grades like as a student? I always feel like the super successful faculty who are published and have positions in organized dentistry (I aspire to one day as well) were stellar students.
