The dental health professions include dentistry, dental hygiene, dental laboratory technology, and dental assisting. All of these careers continue to be in high demand nationally, and especially in the state of New Mexico. The format of this seminar will consist of a blend of lectures and field trips to various clinical, laboratory, and educational settings in Albuquerque. Students will be encouraged to explore experientially whether career choices in this area match their interests, as well as their educational and vocational objectives. The presentations you develop in Public Speaking will be about topics we are studying in the Seminar. In this way, students enrolled in this LC will learn public speaking skills specifically geared toward their roles as dental health professionals and also learn about the dental health professions with communication sensitivity.Freshman Seminar Instructor - Tatlock, C
