Remember all the questions you had when you left dental hygiene school?  

This is an opportunity for you to be a resource for a new Wichita State dental hygiene graduate for their first year out of practice. 

Be someone they can call or text in their first year of practice. They may have questions like:

  • How should I interview? 

  • What do I wear?

  • Professionalism questions.

  • How do I network with other hygienists?  

  • What are some dental hygiene tricks of the trade?  

  • What do I do in situations I’m unsure of?  (clinical practice/ethics)

In order to participate:​

  • 1 year commitment (March-March)

  • Have your mentee shadow you if possible during the spring semester (Monday afternoon or Fridays)

  • Contact your mentee and get to know each other (email, text, phone call)

  • Attend an mixer held in the spring of 2020 to meet your mentee.

  • Deadline to sign up is March 1st.

  • Kelly will email you their Bio and contact information when she pairs you with a student once you sign up.
