where can i find out what happens in each year of dental school? is a residency required after dental school, or can you just get to work? i was thinking that maybe i would graduate from dental school, start working to save up some money maybe get married or something, and then enter a residency in order to learn some type of specialty. would that work or is that a bad idea? thanks

d-school websites usually have a four year plan of what classes you take in the fall/spring/summer/etc for every year. so just google it

Residencies aren't required unless you live in NY and then it's a one year residency after dental school. To specialize you must get accepted to a grad program and those last between 3-7 years depending on the field.
