Dr. Maureen McAndrew could not foresee how her career would change when she took a part-time job teaching at New York University College of Dentistry 16 years ago. The plan had been to teach while earning her master’s degree in education, but the teaching evolved quickly into a full-time position managing clinical faculty and coordinating the curriculum at NYUCD’s new simulation lab. Today she has made lifelong learning a focus of the programming she has created for clinical faculty at NYUCD.

In 2005, Christine Harper, M.S., attended a Washington, DC, conference—a gathering of contemplative scholars and scientists in the areas of medicine, psychology and neuroscience. After reviewing the literature on the potential for meditation as an evidence-based intervention, she looked for ways to integrate this practice into the UKCD curriculum, with the goal of helping students improve their academic outcomes.

When Dalhousie Dentistry announced it had temporarily suspended 13 male dental students from clinical work for belonging to a misogynistic Facebook group, the scandal shook the dental education community. Dr. Dieter Schönwetter, Associate Dean Academic (acting) and Director of Educational Resources and Faculty Development at the University of Manitoba College of Dentistry (U of M COD), an early adopter of social media and a teacher of practice management, was well positioned to address this crisis with students when his dean came to him and asked him to get involved.

At Tufts University School of Dental Medicine, Dr. Kanchan Ganda has created an innovative and beneficial program that teaches students not only to notice the signs of domestic abuse—and how to respond when they see these signs—but also to provide much-needed, sometimes even lifesaving, treatment to victims.
