The Future of Dental Education
EDWARD F. FARKAS, DDS, MA, VICE DEAN, TOURO COLLEGE OF DENTAL MEDICINE: The academic clinical experience has evolved over time. As an undergraduate in 1981, there wasn't a lot of feedback from the faculty. There wasn't a lot of student input into how things are run and the processes. That's all changed.
RONNIE MYERS, DDS, DEAN, TOURO COLLEGE OF DENTAL MEDICINE: Our students have gone from the classroom of basic science learning and foundational knowledge to the state-of-the-art, technologically most advanced clinic that one could find in treating the patients of the Lower Hudson Valley.
JAY P. GOLDSMITH, DMD, FOUNDING DEAN: We are very energized to help the community. That's one of our missions here at Touro is to provide as much health care as possible to those who need it.
DANIEL KATZ, CLASS OF 2020: They really show us the importance of making sure everyone is taken care of and being seen by doctors and being seen by us as dentists.
ALEXANDER HALL, DMD, ASSOCIATE PROFESSOR: The Touro experience has been very good for my students. And to me, it's the best experience. And it's the best experience for them as a learning dentist because they get an opportunity to really stimulate patients to care for themselves.
ARLYN FRAIM, CLASS OF 2020: I had this patient. He was eight years old. And he had amelogenesis imperfecta. We were able to treat him because we had the tools. He was just so happy. He couldn't stop looking at himself. And it made me feel great. I went home, and I had to tell everyone around me how amazing I made this little kid feel.
ALAN JURIM, DDS, DIRECTOR OF DIGITAL DENTISTRY, TOURO COLLEGE OF DENTAL MEDICINE: The biggest way we're able to influence a patient experience and the care we provide our patients with digital dentistry is by applying new tools that are available to us. These tools allow us to use digital dentistry to be a better diagnostic process for our patients rather than just a restorative solution.
SETAREH GHANBARIAN, CLASS OF 2020: Here at Touro College, we have the opportunity to work with different types of ways of assessing patient's needs. I think that with all these different technologies that we are learning, when we are out in the real world, we'll be able to know how to treat people with quality care.
EDWARD F. FARKAS, DDS, MA, VICE DEAN, TOURO COLLEGE OF DENTAL MEDICINE: It's important to break the mold in building the dental education institution of the future because you want to make sure that your students graduate with tools that are relevant for the future.
BARBARA JURIM, DDS, ASSISTANT DIRECTOR OF DIGITAL DENTISTRY, TOURO COLLEGE OF DENTAL MEDICINE: One of the reasons that we've invested our time and energy in building up the digital systems at Touro is because we knew that growing it organically from the ground up gave us a lot of control and how to introduce this whole field to the student population that's here, which is really exciting because it's never been done before.
ALAN KADISH, MD, TOURO COLLEGE AND UNIVERSITY SYSTEM PRESIDENT: We've invested hugely in the Touro College of Dental Medicine to create state-of-the-art educational and clinical care facilities. It's an expensive proposition, and our commitment is to remain on the cutting-edge of technology.
RONNIE MYERS, DDS, DEAN, TOURO COLLEGE OF DENTAL MEDICINE: The providers that we educate today would be intimately involved in overall health care, not just oral health care, but overall health care. They will be part of the team of making populations healthier. We'll be focused on that as we build for the future.

An empathetic and effective dentist sees the individual, learns their personality, empowers them by encouraging their unique strengths, and works together to overcome personal challenges."

Time for another TCDM Student Spotlight ⭐️This is Rena Katz. She's set to graduate this year and is originally from Queens, NY🥼 🦷What made you want to become a dentist? I liked the idea of working with something tangible. It's really gratifying to physically enact a transformation you can see from start to finish. 🦷Something you learned at TCDM? One thing I learned is how important it is to have a good support system. I'm really grateful for the faculty and the friends I've made here. I owe a lot to them. 🦷What's next for you? I am thrilled to share that I matched with Open Door/Phelps! I am so excited to take this next step in my D.D.S. journey . . . #dentalstudent #studentlife #futuredds #dentistsofinstagram #dds #teethpeople #tcdm
