I am currently in High School and as you can tell I have a huge interest in the field of dentistry. When I do end up shadowing a dentist - I may or may not reconsider my career choice. But I just would like some advice for my situation that I most likely will encounter if I continue to pursue my dream of being a Dentist.
I live in the suburb of Chicago and after completing undergrand I do plan to apply for UIC (possibly SIU). That is or those are the only schools I wish to apply for. The reason being is because of my culture - being too far away from family is highly disliked.
Does anyone have advice for this type of situation? It is greatly appreciated.
check out the programs they offer at UOP, i believe they have a 5 year program right out of highschool for dentistry!!! and a 7 year program for ortho...
