    Last night, I had my first dream in which I was doing a dental procedure (it was just like one I saw my mentor-dentist do, except I was in his place (in the dream I was even left-handed, as he is, not right-handed, as I am)).

    It was an extraction of a #6. I don't think I'll ever forget it. :love:

    I suppose what it means to me is that deep down I've come to accept the image of my future self as a dentist.

    Now all I have to do is get into dental school... :(


    What about other pre-dents? Anything similar?

    I had a dream where I had to cut an MOD onlay prep for #5, and the whole thing went miserably ("mesial gingival floor? We don't NEED no stinking mesial gingival floor!").

    Wait, wait, wait. That wasn't a dream. That was my lab practical today. :thumbdown: :thumbdown: :thumbdown:

    Me too, plus in the dream is a 50 inch Sony plasma screen hanging from my wall. :cool: Oh yeah, and one nightmare I had a few weeks after getting accepted was all my teeth falling out. :thumbdown:

    I dreamt a few weeks ago that the dentist I have shadowed found out I got accepted to dental school and hired me as an associate telling me I didn't need to go to dental school but that he would train me for what I needed to know. The next thing I knew he put me in a room looking at some x-rays of my first patient with the patient in the chair next to me. I was thinking..."Crap, I don't know what I am doing! I haven't learned this stuff yet!" Then I woke up. :laugh: :laugh:

    The frightening thing is, when you see your first ever patient probably sometime during 2nd year in dental school, that is exactly how you will feel! :smuggrin:

    Whoa - that's really interesting!! A closet really is kinda like an oral cavity: a dark, enclosed space, but with clothes & shoes instead of tongue & teeth. I never thought of it that way before; that's an awesome analogy your mind came up with. :thumbup:
