Dental school vs Med school?

I am stuck between choosing to go to dental school or med school. I don't really like the architectural side of dentistry but it is easier to study and it doesn't take long. I do like medicine and I am interested in learning and helping people but it takes a while and I hear doctors have irregular hours to work. What should I choose?

Dental Hygienist Interview Questions

Hi! My name is Jenny and I am a current high school student. I'm conducting an interview with any professional in the dental field, specifically a dental hygienist, for a Foundations in Health Science Class project about careers! I have created a total of 13 questions. Comment on this post, answering all 13 questions to be apart of my assignment. 1. What do you do for work on a regular basis? 2. What was your biggest challenge when preparing to become a dental hygienist? 3. What skills are required to be a dental hygienist? 4. What is your favorite thing as a dental hygienist? 5. How many years of school did you have to do? 6. How has the career changed from when you started? 7. How would you describe the overall work environment? 8. What did you need to do to become a dental hygienist? 9. Why specifically a dental hygienist and not in any other dental specialities? 10. What caught your interest to pursue this career? 11. What is your favorite thing about your job? 12. What have you learned since the start of your career? 13. Did you always want to pursue in dental hygiene?

Do you recommend getting a degree in an international school?

I'm asking because I'm wondering if the U.S. would recognize the degree when I come back. For example, if I went to dental school in Spain would I be able to work as a dentist here? #international #international-affairs #study-abroad #overseas-study #dental-school #dentistry #dentist #orthodontist #career #college-admissions #college-advice #higher-education #college-bound #college #college-selection #university

What should I do to increase my chances of getting into a dental program?

I am a recent graduate with a biology major. Although proud of my success, I've graduated with a 2.60 GPA, but I've held a lab job, commuted from home, and participated on the school sports team for the past 4 years. I went to a competitive university and find it sad because compared to my peers I was usually AVERAGE on the curved grading scale, this was usually a C+ letter grade. I wanted to apply for dental school but shortly after my first C, I realized the dream was far out of my reach. 3 years later, I've realized that I either have to change my career of choice or take an alternative route. To start, I'm actually going to pick up extra classes at my university this upcoming school year. The following year, I will be retaking a few classes I didn't do very well in, although they won't contribute to improving my UC GPA, I'm hoping they will still be taken into consideration by dental programs. The 3rd gap year, I will take to finally apply to several school near and far, small and large. On top of all of this, I will be looking for a job as a dental assistant to gain experience and also volunteer and maybe do a medical trip. I want to know if there are any other ways to improve my chances at entering a dental program. At this point, my far off reach goal would be a DDS program and plan B would be a dental hygienist. Please let me know if I should still even try applying, and if so any other ideas of improving my application and how. #dentistry #dental-hygienist #dental-school

What are some good colleges to apply to for dentistry?

I am a sophomore in high school and I am looking into attending college for dentistry. UMKC is my top choice due to the close location and outstanding dentistry program. UMKC is a really great school to study dentistry, but I also want other options and backup plans ready. I live in Kansas City and would love some incite to other great schools to choose from. #college #dentistry #dentist #dental-hygienist #dental #dental-school

How difficult is it to start a career in dentistry?

I am a sophomore in high school and I am interested in starting a career in dentistry after high school and college. I would like to know the possible road of going to college, finding a place to work, and starting a career could go. Was finishing school difficult? Long? Was finding a place to work a struggle? How about keeping the job? Is the job stressful? Does the job pay well? Is it easy to get a job fresh out of college?
