    How many of you are (at this time, anyway) thinking you want to go directly into private practice after school, rather than specializing or going to GPR/AEGD programs? I am interested to know your thoughts, if you have considered this. It seems the trend is toward GPR/AEGD, but many have told me that this is just because many students are not confident in themselves and are a bit slow at first. Comments, anyone?

    I would like to go into an established practice with a group of Dentists. That way I can have some experience to fall back on if I get stuck or confused. My father practiced alone for 26 years and has always said that if he could do it again he would go into a group practice for the companionship. I like the idea of a residency period for new graduates in lieu of a test.
