Leader Insight

“Oregon AGD has a new student engagement strategy. In exchange for students’ personal email addresses, we provided all third- and fourth-year dental students with ‘Oregon AGD’-monogrammed scrubs. The students were delighted — we received nearly 100 percent of ongoing email addresses, and, each day in the clinics, Oregon AGD is promoted via monograms. Other student engagement programs were cut back to make this affordable. AGD recognition has improved, and time will tell if student retention after graduation has increased.”
