Your GPA isn't going to determine whether or not you'll be a good dentist.So first semester of dental school is about to end and my GPA is around 3.1-3.2. Not sure if i want to specialize, but this GPA makes me feel like i wont be as good of a dentist as my classmates. Any words of encouragement?
Honestly, I almost flunked out first year in dental school and probably graduated near the bottom of my class in ranking. I passed all my boards first time in the 90%ile anyhow. I then opened my own practice with zero experience immediately after getting my license. Twelve years later I'm kind of semi-retired and working part-time cause I haven't figured out what to do with the next 40 years of my life.
