I don't understand why a thread like this would be a reason for racism being prevalent..... they are just trying to find others like themselves going into the field....

Paki from Cali.

It's so cool to see desi people in dentistry since I personally know very few. Plus it's interesting to see which people on SDN are desi since there's no face behind the screennames. :D

Seriously, this thread is anything but original. Closing.

You think this thread is original, Tinman? How about some consistency? If your MO is going to be only allowing original topics specifically pertaining to dentistry, this thread is as moot as any. This crap is a dime a dozen.

But hey, Tin, I honestly respect you for your many hours of commitment to making this forum what it is. I mean, there was a time when I truly believed in this place...a shining beacon upon the dark expanse of digital chaos and bigotry we've come to know simply as 'the internets'.

I love you, Tin, but you're letting us down.

I see how you can be proud to be desi or proud to be of middle-eastern descent, but I don't really understand how these two groups are related at all. Shouldn't these have been two seperate threads? :p

I suppose by birth I would fall into the 'desi' category.

curious knowing how the arab culture is from friends, do all arab communities see those who went to dental school as second class med students. I know arabs always tell their kids, Medicine or Law ONLY with big emphasis on medicine, and dont say that was the old days, they all do it, in my undergrad all the middle eastern people i knew were premed those that couldnt hack med went dental and those who couldnt hack either went law, never saw a communications middle eastern and probably one or two business ones.

Well just in case you didn't know, this can be said about a lot of cultures...even here in the US. A lot of people are ignorant about dentistry, but once you inform them, they smile and tell you what a great choice your making lol.

opthamology is all outpatient care... a cataracts surgery is as bread and butter, if not more, than a root canal..

not to mention, there are very rarely eye emergencies, hence not a lot of on call.

and i feel that they get paid more than dentists too.
