    We're starting a 20 questions series for dentistry. We will interview DDS/DMDs in each field of dentistry.

    What questions would you like us to ask of practicing dentists?

    Hey, do we have any dental mentors? I didn't see any when I visited the forum.

    anyway, on point...

    Q: Can you give predents and dental students a single, most-valuable piece of advice that you think we should keep with us throughout our career?

    Q: Do you have any regrets with regards to your career path?

    Q: How do you feel technology has changed the field of dentistry? Do you think it is necessary to upgrade from the old technology?

    Q: Did you choose to start your own practice from the ground up or did you buy someone out? If so how did you go about finding the practice you wanted?

    Why did you choose to practice your specific branch of dentistry?

    Did you do a GPR or AEGD, and why? Did it help your earning potential once you completed it?

    Did(or do) you have any difficulties/frustrations with the business aspects of private practice dentistry?

    Does your day to day work become monotonous or does the variety of patients/cases keep work exciting and stimulating?

    For OMFS: Do you find a way to still take on more involved cases or facial trauma cases like those that are experienced during residency?

    What path did you take after graduation to where you are now (GPR, AEGD, Associateship)?

    How soon after did you start your own / take over a practice (if you did)?

    Financially how difficult was that, including new start up costs and especially considering previous dental school loans?

    Describe your average work week now, and for comparison as a recent grad in your first job.
