Dental School Interviews
Hello dental school applicants! I’m sure all of you are
excited yet nervous about dental school interview invitations! I’d like to
share some of my dental school interview experiences and lessons learned.
Okay... here we go:
1st.... Be confident! Even though you are nervous, don’t
show it! Practice mock interviews in front of a mirror or with your best
2nd.... Be humble. Don’t be boasting about your past
experiences. Of course we all like to share our past experiences, but present
yourself in a humble yet professional manner.
3rd.... Be prepared! When it comes to an interview, don’t
just think you’re going to wing it. Go online to find some interview questions
and make sure you can answer the relevant questions. Questions such as “Why
dentistry?”, “What are your strengths/weaknesses?”, “Please elaborate on XXX written
on your CV” will always be asked.
4th.... Make sure you get plenty of rest the night before.
If you have to travel out of state, make sure to book a flight that will allow
you to have some time to rest. Giving your interviewer a good first impression
5th... GOOD LUCK!
