No on here knows for sure. Just follow the application instructions on the school's websites and don't deviate from that. If they ask for a general dentist letter, that's what you give them. Little things like your recommended alma mater don't matter - it's your overall package and the interview that will get you in.What about the school they graduated from? Ex. Harvard dental school vs very low ranked school?
My application had a letter of recommendation from a periodontist and an orthodontist. First and foremost, they are dentists who have gone through the rigors of dental school and understand the caliber of a student necessary for dental school. The one thing that matters and holds weight is what the say about you, the depth that they know you and the extent to which they recommend you to join them as colleagues.
I have seen this actually happen. Eventually, the chickens come home to roost. Don't do it. It's like being a fugitive.Schools only care about their class rank and if they are a member of OKU. Seriously though, the person writing your letter is not going to write about where they went to school and how awesome they are, they are going to write about you. I personally believe that letters of recommendation must be taken with a grain salt. If you wanted to game the system, you could just create a fictitious dentist and email address and write your own letter of recommendation. Do you really think schools have time to verify the authenticity of every single letter of recommendation? Top tier business schools recognized this and that all to often supervisors would just have the applicant write their own letter and then the boss would send it off, so letters have minimal influence in the application process. As a side note, if someone is a weasel and tries this, I hope they do get caught up by dental schools. I'm a big fan of truth, justice, and the American way.
