High school students can learn about careers in dental assisting, dental hygiene, and dental laboratory technology
Indiana University Northwest invites high school students to explore careers in dental education at a free camp from 1 to 5 p.m., Friday, June 10 in the region’s only onsite Dental Education Clinic and laboratory.
Teens will tour the facility located in the campus’s Dunes Medical/Professional Building, and meet dental education faculty, staff, and students. They will learn about careers in dentistry, including dental assisting, hygiene, and laboratory technician.
Students will use dental mannequins to practice taking impressions, polishing and flossing teeth, taking x-rays, and using an intraoral camera. They will learn about oral diseases and mouth abnormalities, as well as how to interpret dental radiographs and how the acidity of bottled water can affect one’s oral health.
The camp is open to all high school students. Early registration is recommended as space is limited. To register, visit iun.edu/dentalcamp.
