The FLA-MOM has many wonderful opportunities for students. However, D1-3 and hygiene students will not be able to treat patients at the event, even under supervision. Only D4 students will be allowed to practice in select departments. The FLA-MOM provides a great atmosphere for learning and we encourage students to volunteer in positions where they can interact with patients, such as patient education, exit interviews, escorting patients or assisting in dental, hygiene or sterilization treatment. These important volunteer positions allow students to build experience and expand their skill sets beyond what they learn in the classroom.
