2008 WELCOME TO THE "REAL WORLD"

On March 12, we were able to coax Dr. Dave Jarrell out of retirement for the morning. He was recruited to represent the dental/orthodontic profession during the "Real World" program for 1,200 area 7th grade students. Coordinated by Partners in Education and IU Kokomo, Dr. Dave was among the 50 professionals who volunteered their time to take part in the program. Seventh grade students were given a list of careers and asked to choose which one they would like to learn more about. Those students who chose the dental profession then attended a workshop led by Dr. Dave who told the students what they could expect if they chose that career path. Some of the subjects Dr. Dave discussed with the students were: college coursework, the cost of that coursework, projected income, expenses associated with running your own dental/orthodontic practice, and the joy of running your own practice, along with a general overview of a "typical" day in the life of a dentist/orthodontist.
