What Our Alumni Say

  • "I was looking for a program that focused on becoming a better 'DENTAL' educator. This program aligned with my goals, and the school graciously supported me. I am so happy that I got the opportunity to attend. It has broadened my perspective, and also made me more aware of what I can do to become a better educator. I am truly grateful and hope to be able to implement some of the things I've learnt."


    Faye Mascarenhas, Louisiana State University School of Dentistry

  • "The ITL program was absolutely transformative for me. I'd seen myself as a good teacher but hadn't understood what it meant to be an educator. ITL helped me take that leap and that's made all the difference in my career. I've gained the skills and confidence to develop a communication program for our students that will be rolling out soon. I'm truly grateful."


    Mike Slesnick, Boston University Henry M Goldman School of Dental Medicine
