Dr. Yang exudes a genuine passion for helping pre-dental students accomplish their dreams. Her book is an invaluable resource that has culminated from her years of experience in dental admissions and her desire to offer a more holistic strategy than the formulaic types of admission tips that are often seen.
The pre-dental consultants, Hilary and Elika, from the American Student Dental Association took the time to review our book, and it was published a few days ago on the Mouthing Off blog.
No matter where you are in the process of applying to dental schools, “Your Essential Guide to Dental School Admissions” by Dr. Helen Yang [et al] is a must-read. Applying to dental school may be overwhelming, but this resource “for pre-dents, by dentists” provides firsthand knowledge from new dentists about this formidable yet exciting process.
I have been teaching Dentistry at Harvard for 30 years. That is how overdue this terrific book is. I have already given six copies to wonderful young people who hope to become dentists someday. Competition for the spaces in the freshman class are fierce. This book helps a young person decide if they really want to dedicate themselves to a dental education. If they do decide to become dentists, this book helps them present themselves as worthy applicants.
Thanks to everyone who took the time to email me or message me on SDN with your feedback. The feedback thus far has been overwhelmingly positive, and it means a lot that pre-dents are benefitting from our tips and strategies.
