Hi! I'm really interested in pediatric dentistry...i finished a AEGD in 06 and have been working with children for about 4 years, mostly with N2o ( no sedations). i applied in 07 but got no interviwes. My stats are part I:89
part II: 79 ( low!!!) My school didnt rank us GPA 3.5
what can i do to make me self more competative. I live in the houston TX area. Is there any one around here practicing that i can maybe shadow

How many programs did you apply to? if not too many, you have to apply to more.

You may need to do a pedo internship somewhere. I've seen a lot worse stats get in, but they had more post grad residency time put in. You also must be prepared to relocate anywhere.
