Until you get accepted. We’d like it to be this year but even if it’s not, you’ll stay a member with the same privileges throughout.
If you’re a member of one of our courses (Interview Mastery and Bench Test Mastery), or if you’re already a member of both courses, we’re very sorry but this a time sensitive special that’s only for new members.
If you signed up in the last 7 days however, please let us know and we’ll make an exception for you by allowing you upgrade.
Once you become a member you gain access to our Member-only Website. On that website there’a page you can use to upload pictures of your prep and leave notes to go along with it for Dr. Alyssa. Once she receives it she’ll pull it up on her laptop, move her mouse around while speaking into a microphone to evaluate the preparation – it becomes a video. She focuses on how to approach things differently to improve your skills.
She says that mistakes are not unique, but rather people repeat the same mistakes over and over again. When she see’s a preparation she’s able to tell what the operator did to produce that preparation in an instant.
Preparations are made from fast spinning burs. Wherever a bur touches a tooth, it leaves a trail behind. So by looking at the tooth a trained-eye like Dr. Alyssa’s can tell what movements were made by the burs, and therefore by the handpiece, making it possible to give detailed advice to help you improve.
Yes it’s a bit unconventional to learn preparations online, we totally understand you wonder how it’s done.
And yes, you can improve your hand-skills a great deal through the online Bench Test Mastery.
Our students say they turn on the course videos every time they do a preparation – that way they follow along step-by-step and repeat a ton. Repetition is the mother of skill.
We also use a special filming technique called Zoom-2-View that simultaneously films a preparation in motion from 2 views at once. This way you can see how the bur is moving from different angles and are not confined to 2 dimensional viewing.
If you do your part, which is watching the videos, practicing, and sending in your work and being open to changing the ways when you receive feedback – yes, you will improve a lot with the Bench Test Mastery.
You’re definitely not alone in needing refreshers for your basics. Bench Test Mastery was created with you in mind.
We have modules that go over basics starting from How to Hold your Handpiece, and with every preparation there are accompanying theory videos and explanation videos that you’ll watch before actually starting the prep. In those you’ll learn what exactly you’re trying to do with the prep and how you’re going to do it. Only after all of that will you actually pick up the handpiece and start doing it yourself.
While it’s true that everyone has their own style in expressing their unique abilities and experiences during their interview, all interviews follow certain constants, that need to be recognized and understood by candidates in order to ensure their success. Candidates who walk into an interview ignorant of these principals risk making major mistakes. Remember, for each school you only get to make a first impression one time (even if you’re invited back for a second interview, it’s hard to change your earlier first impression).
Absolutely not. Our course is designed to give you the necessary framework and context for your upcoming interview so that you can respond to any question in a truly unique and refreshing way. In fact, we find that those candidates who don’t go through our interview training are more likely to end up sounding the same as everyone else because they are not aware of the most common pitfalls that interviewees make, nor are they aware of how common their responses actually are. We don’t let you fall into this trap, but instead teach you how to come up with truly interesting responses during your interview that intrigue your listeners.
We cover the most frequently asked questions that international dentist candidates are regularly asked year after year during their interviews. We’ve obtained these questions through discussions with our clients who’ve undergone interviews at the various advanced standing programs throughout the U.S.
For each interview question, we provide a video overview of the best practices for responding to that question. If you find that there’s a question that we don’t cover in the course that you’d like to get tips for how to respond during your upcoming interview, you’ll be able to submit new questions to us that we’ll add to our queue of topics to cover.
