“Being a mentor myself along with fellow colleagues, we all agree that the experiences we gained enabled self-reflection, personal gratification, and growth as oral health care professionals.”

Mentorship plays such an important role in the professional lives of dental hygienists, and both the student and the Mentor grow from the experience. When I reflect on my own career, I am grateful for the powerful, supportive roles that mentors have played in helping me to become both the dental hygienist, and the person, that I have become. Today, in my role as an educator, I find myself mentored by my students. I may be there to teach them, but I am learning from them, as well. Mentorship is a shared experience with shared development and growth; may you all share in these benefits.

The student-mentor relationship isso enriching for both mentor and mentee; and in fact, sometimes you will wonder
who is mentoring who–that is something wonderful which happens as we all
continue to deepen our understanding of our profession.
