Hi Everyone I am a complete newbie at this so please help me. I would like to go into dentistry, a specialty such as orthodontist or wisdom tooth surgery, I am not sure of the correct term for this. I would like to know how long residency is. In addition, when are DAT test registrations deadlines? Can I take the test whenever? What is the highest score one could obtain on the DAT? How do I contact schools to let them know that I wantto apply? Is a personal statement needed? What sort of LORs must I need? I am a sophomore and so I don't know much...especially since I don't have a pre-dentistry advisor at my school. Thank you.
