A poll this week on one particular aspect of a dentist's lifestyle. I went to volunteer at a "free clinic" in a disadvantaged part of town and met with three awesome dentists who volunteer their time to treat patients. One guy works there full-time (retired from his private practice), and the others come in on a regular basis. I know we all do some sort of community service as pre-dental students, but is volunteer work the kind of thing you see yourself doing after you earn your dental degree? P.S. A new thing (along with this new format) with creating polls is that there's an option to have peoples' identities associated with their responses -- I did NOT check that box, and probably never will!!!
