Our extracurricular experiences will help broaden your knowledge and understanding of the world around you. Junior Journeys, internships, shadowing and research.
Students find many opportunities in and around the city of Lakeland, as well as across the country and even internationally to gain experience. One of our most popular venues is Lakeland Volunteers in Medicine (LVIM), a facility only ten minutes from campus that allows students to experience firsthand many aspects of providing dental care to the working uninsured in Polk County. Local dentists, orthodontists and oral surgeons have provided excellent shadowing opportunities for our students. Outside of Florida, students have interned at various facilities across the country, and have traveled overseas on dental mission trips to places such as Nicaragua.
