This is something I argue about with a family member of mine that is a dentist all the time. I have my degree in biology, decent grades, but nothing spectacular. So I have decided I need to get a Masters degree, which is something I've been advised to do by many people. Plus, it is just something I'd like to have. Anyway, this family member keeps saying that his dentist friends think i need to start into a dental hygiene program and that will make me look better to the Dental Schools. I think this is absurd. Won't upper level science classes, research, and a MS make me look a lot better than that? He says that this one girl he knows is in a Dental Hygiene bachelor's program that she transferred into from a CC, and that she'll be in Dental school before me. Is there any truth to that? Any advice?
