SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) Hello, I'm a non-trad pre-med (did a post-bacc and took the April MCAT 3 weeks ago, applying this summer for fall '06) who has recently began to mull over dentistry instead of medicine. I'm 28, female, married, and am really having a hard time with the decision of whether, after doing a post-bacc, studying for and taking the MCAT twice, I truly want to go through 8 years to be a doctor. I love medicine and patients, but at 28, I'm also thinking ahead to having kids. I'm wondering if denstistry might be a better fit for me. Anyone else on the pre-med track thinking the same? As I really don't know much about dentistry, I need to talk to some dentists, etc.
