Student Story

"After I finished dental school, I wanted another year of mentorship and hands-on experiences to build
on my skills and knowledge. That’s what I’m getting at UNMC in all areas of dentistry. I didn’t have a lot of experience with special needs patients before UNMC, and that has been a really rewarding demographic to work with." - Maureen Bigsby, DMD, AEGD Resident
