Man, I hope not. I?ve had some serious issues with speeding tickets. If that will make me a bad dentist, then I don't want to go to dental school anymore. :rolleyes:

They just want to know whether or not you are a convicted felon, driving tickets have no barring on their decision.

Hopefully speeding tickets are just an infraction where you live and not a misdemeanor. Even still, 90% of applications only ask about felonies.

In those applications that asked about misdemeanors, I listed every speeding ticket I got in the past 3 years. The way I see it, honesty makes a good impression.


Edited to fix the obvious mistake.

Now THAT would be real serious! :D

Sorry, it was kind of late. :D

I feel pretty stupid when I make mistakes like that.
