education, or hands-on during service missions in areas that
don't see much formal dental treatment otherwise.
While dentistry isn't traditionally an area that's seen
a lot of study abroad, administrators say international
experience is growing in importance in the field. That's
partially because dentists, like many healthcare professionals in the United States, will work with many people
from many other cultures depending on where they practice, and a study or work-abroad experience offers them a
foundation for that sort of work. And it's partially a shift
toward global thinking among Millennial Generation
members that's forcing the change; the current generation of students has never felt bound by formal country
barriers and demands the opportunity to study or work
abroad in a formal program before graduating.
The benefits, they say, are countless, ranging from handson experience in situations not offered during traditional
clinical rotations, to a commitment to do good with one's career rather than counting dollars and days until retirement.

The University of Louisville's ISLP program launched
around 1997 with a trip to Barbados, says Clinical Associate
Professor and Director of Quality Assurance and Accountability Paula Collins, DMD. It's a multidisciplinary program
that includes dentistry along with medical, nursing, justice
administration, engineering, civic leadership, and students
and faculty from departments all over campus. That diversity, she says, adds to the program in concrete ways.
"So many things make this unique," says Collins. "They
work together with disciplines outside of medicine, up
to and including social issues and problems. The dental
component is just one aspect, but they have to work with
other disciplines in other clinics."
