SOE Educators Session: The Changing Landscape in Orthodontic Admissions reviews what has been learned about a virtual admissions process and where we anticipate admission processes will go from here. The program is led by moderator, Dr. Kelton Stewart, Chairperson of Orthodontics and Oral Facial Genetics and Director of Orthodontics, Indiana University School of Dentistry and a distinguished panel of educators including:
Dr. Negin Katebi, Interim Program Director of Orthodontics at Harvard School of Dental Medicine

Dr. Ben Pliska, Associate Professor at UBC Faculty of Dentistry

This 90-minute program will be a face-paced discussion starting about the last two admission cycles including looking at what worked, what did not work, what was learned, and what, if any of the process will schools use in the future?
To take the conversation on the future of admissions, the panel will discuss several topics, including;
Metrics that are used for reviewing applicants and the benefits of the process
The MATCH program ... Benefits? Drawbacks?
How do you identify potential applicants that are both qualified and interested in your program?
