Taking a Bite Out of Dentistry

Posted: 01/02/19

Wild Aspirations returned with aspiring dentists in the Upper Sixth leading a workshop designed to give students of all ages the opportunity to appreciate how human dentists draw parallels across the animal kingdom to treat zoo animals suffering from a range of dental issues. Students especially enjoyed comparing the dental arrangements of a leopard and a deer using handcrafted resin skull replicas, before analysing dental charts and intraoral X-rays to plan treatments for both human and animal patients.  

As the founders of the Wild Aspirations programme, Honor Leslie Melville and Tilly Thomas begin to focus more on their final examinations, it is a delight to announce that several committed members from the Middle School and the Lower Sixth will be taking over the reins, working collaboratively to continue developing challenging monthly workshops designed to inspire students to re-examine the natural world.
