Proof Book or Portfolio

Most dental schools incorporate one or more case presentations or more comprehensive portfolio reviews as part of their assessments of dental students. Accordingly, an associate candidate may be wise to have these available when looking for an associateship position. Obviously, care must be taken to secure releases from patients or to otherwise protect patient privacy information. A portfolio can provide visual evidence of the clinical skills demonstrated by an associate candidate.
