The developing Lincoln Memorial University-College of Dental Medicine (LMU-CDM) has partnered with Promethean Dental Systems to offer its second admission boot camps for college students interested in pursuing dentistry or dental hygiene. Registration is now open for the December 13-16 bootcamp, to be held at the LMU Tower in Knoxville. For more information visit https://prometheandentalsystems.com/en/pre-admissions?hsLang=en

“LMU is excited to partner with Promethean again to bring this dental simulator and admission bootcamp to Knoxville. Psychomotor skills are so vital in this profession, and this is an opportunity to evaluate a person’s potential success beyond a standardized test,” said Dr. Denise Terese-Koch, dean of the LMU-CDM. “If you don’t have that hand-eye coordination, it is not that you can’t learn it. You just might need extra time to develop that skill, and this evaluation and boot camp could be your first step on the path to become a dentist or hygienist.”

The four-day comprehensive program is designed to evaluate, teach, elevate and assess vital hand skills utilizing the Simodont dental simulator. The program gives students the chance to build confidence and prepare for successful careers in dentistry. Additionally, participants will learn about dental anatomy, tooth numbering, dental materials, digital dentistry and tour the dental school environment. The bootcamp will also introduce participants to the dental school admissions process and exposes them to didactic lectures and keynote speakers.

Lincoln Memorial University is a values-based learning community dedicated to providing educational experiences in the liberal arts and professional studies.  The main campus is located in Harrogate, Tennessee.
