“By learning you will teach; by teaching you will learn” Latin proverb. Teaching is a high priority for me. It is also a source of great job satisfaction. A main focus of my teaching efforts is based on actual patient care in the orthodontic clinic. I enjoy being able to connect learning to actual patients. For me, the best way to accomplish my teaching goals is through small group or one-on-one teaching, particularly in a clinically relevant setting. The relevant setting is key: it allows the student to integrate knowledge into a useful framework and provides emotional resonance to the learning process. Learning in a clinical setting requires a delicate balance between safety and realism. The environment must be realistic enough so that the knowledge and skills that the student is learning are applicable to similar clinical situations in the future. However, the setting needs to be safe enough so that the student feels empowered to explore the boundaries of their developing skills. It’s hard for me to decide which I like better, being a student or a teacher. I love the challenges of orthodontics, whether learning new techniques, or learning about a new patient’s culture. I like mastering the fundamentals, then learning to apply my knowledge to the multiple representations of real world problems. I am keen on the academic arena and being around so many other smart orthodontists.
