Growing and learning as dentistry evolves

Editor-in-Chief David Danesh, Harvard '20, writes: "With most dental students growing up as part of the internet generation, we quickly adapt to emerging dental technologies. Digital scanning and impressions, dental workflow for design and fabrication of appliances, restorations and prostheses, and electronic health records all seem intuitive to the average millennial dental (or even non-dental) student. How can we take advantage of this unique world as we grow and learn?"

March Contour discusses the influence of dental technology on dental labs, digital dentistry, direct-to-consumer dental products and social entrepreneurship. This issue also discusses the importance of getting involved in research and how music could potentially help curb opioid addiction.
