"I am sure to read Dentistry Today, and Journal of the American Dental Association, on a regular basis. In addition to these medical journals, I also subscribe to DentalEconomics.com. It's important to diversify where your news comes from and I would love some fresh suggestions. What are your favorite places for news on current trends?"
The interviewers want to see that you have a keen interest in continually learning your craft. The dental industry is ever changing! Talk about how you stay up to date on industry trends, new breakthroughs, dentistry related concerns, and more. List a couple of dental journals that you like to read and discuss how often you dive into dental related news. Perhaps you subscribe to a particular magazine, blog, or follow certain social media accounts. It's also a great idea to ask the interviewers about their favorite ways to stay in touch on dental related current events. Asking this question in return can make for a great dialogue, and you never know what you will learn!
