I have been a practicing dentist for over 3 years now. I,like most dentists, had always wanted to go into medicine, but decided to go into dentistry because it was shorter in terms of residency and you could make a good living. I am not as happy as I know I would have been in medicine. This definitely is not about money and I would like to express that as I make well into six figures. Why you ask would someone want to give up making a good living in a stable job not to mention go back to school again and take all of those courses like gross anatomy, biochem,etc... Well the answer has to do with happiness ,self-fulfillment and wanting to do more for people than fixing teeth. My questions are the following: 1)Does anyone here know of a dentist who has entered medical school? 2)Would the admissions committees look on me harshly for being a dentsit? Would it hurt or help that I was one 3)I don't remember any chemistry, orgo,physics,etc that I would need for the MCAT. Any suggestions on self study aids? 4) My gpa back in a tier 1 college was 3.61 and science was a 3.46 so is that decent enough to have a chance? Thanks in advance. I wish there was a support group of people who were thinking about switching careers to medicine.
