Who this course is for:
- Dental students
Dental Tutor is a dentist who wants to give valuable courses to struggling dental students. After graduating from college and getting some experience in the field, I started to explore teaching and tutoring. What caught my attention that there was a lack of online courses in the dental area, which I thought it is time to introduce change and give the students the benefit of flexibility while learning.
