    I think you need to have DDS/MD to do oral surgery, right?

    Have you been accepted to the program?

    What sort of careers could you go into with a DMD/MD? Case is a well respected institution, so i doubt they would make a program that was useless.

    What residency would these individuals go into.

    When I was at Case it seemed like they were selling it as a "one stop shop" kind of thing, like you would become a dentist-physicians in order to maximize the services you, as a single individual, could provide in a rural community.

    yeah, that was my take on it.
    i'm coming from public health, so i think of it as a much needed fusion, because oral health is such a marginalized component of health status.

    thinking about it this way has turned me around on the whole deal. that actually makes a lot of sense.
