I am an incoming junior at a University and have just recently decided to pursue a career in dentistry...I know it's a bit late but better late than never right. That being said, I have a small amount of shadowing hours from a nearby dental clinic. Should I wait until the end of my senior year to apply to den school or apply at the end of my junior year with probably a minimal amount of hours I could accumulate throughout the year? Also. I'm still confused about the cycles and such so I don't even know if at the end of our years is when we apply ??????
