    Not at all unless you did absolutely nothing during those 3 years. There are a lot of nontraditional applicants who have years of work experience before deciding to pursue dentistry.

    It took me three years to get in, so I graduated over 2.5 years ago. I have taken a few correspondence classes, MBA classes, and have worked two full years as a dental assistant. I got in! As long as you have been busy, it will be just fine.

    Yup. Just stay busy with work or school and do something related to dentistry (shadowing, volunteering) during your time off.

    There is a guy in my class that started d-school when he was 45. I think you'll be fine.
