    Hello every one, I am new to these forums and would like to know and get in contact with dentist 50 y/o + that have been accepted to dental school.

    I am getting ready to apply and would like to know if my age would be seen as a negative factor to get accepted.

    Thanks for your responses,

    God bless you all.

    Hi sweetdentist,

    I don't think there is any discrimination regarding the age. secondly, this is North America and doors are open to everyone, regardless of age, sex, origin, and race, that's what I read in the applications.

    :)HELLO USDDS and thank you for your feedback.

    I guess am the only one in this age group applying. Has anyone else applied at this stage, and if yes could you please share your experience?

    Thank you.
