    Maryland (IS) vs. Penn

    Any input would be helpful. Given that price is not a factor, would both schools give comparable clinical experiences for students wanting to practice general dentistry? I realize most recent grads will have slow hand skills anyway, so are the differences among schools' D3/D4 clinical years...

    GP vs. Ortho

    Hey everyone! I wanted to ask if it still makes sense to pursue an Ortho residency or would I be better off being a GP and then taking a bunch of Ortho CE? I know with the rise of "Super GP's" the future of Ortho might be uncertain. What do you guys think?

    General dentist LOR
