    after 10 days volunteer da working in the clinic,,i asked the boss who is a white guy:"boss,when can i get paid??"he answered:"until you speak fluent english." i am angry,so i left at once.
    now i still cant find a job,,i am now review the nbde1 at home as a full time student..i begin with dental anatomy,,i have reviewed dental decks 2001 and 2004, kaplan 2001...
    dental anatomy is not very difficult..but i think it is very difficult to conquer anatomy science,biochem,physiology,microbio,pathology..
    never give up no matter how hopeless

    You may try to enroll in ESL (English as a Second Language) in your community. There might be classes that are offered for free. Another option would be to go to a community college where you can take English classes. If you are required to take the TOEFL for the advanced standing program, then these courses will help you improve your score.

    Please don't let this experience let you down. Instead, take this incident as a challenge and strong motivation to achieve proficiency of the English language. Cheer up and good luck! You will make it. :) :) :thumbup:

    No, zsy lzy, it was not a big mistake. Even though you did not get paid, you got "local experience" on how dentistry is practiced here in the US. Just think of those 10 days as part of your "schooling" so that you don't feel so bad. Somehow, you have gained something out of that experience, right?

    Don't worry, things would be better. Think positive. Count your blessings. You are lucky to have a great mom. Make sure you let her know how much you love and appreciate her. :)

    Hi zsy_lzy,

    As Nanofill said think about that experience as a positive one. Everything happens in life for a reason. Don't worry and start studying hard to get where you want to get. It is a hard road, no doubt, but it is worth it, that's for sure.

    Good luck with everything!!!!!!!!

    Hi

    Yeah, I agree that Part I is tough, especially when you're aiming for a 90+ score in order to be competitive. So don't worry about your job. Just study your butt off for a few months, do well on it, and then you won't have to worry about it. You can then start looking for a job which I think is a lot less stressful and easier to do. Good luck with your studies :luck:

    Thinking positively, is a good way to achieve whatever your heart desire.
    anyone in this forum can tell you how long is the road ahead of you. But you already have taking the first big step...

    When I was relocated to US, I volunteered as a DA to an well established Pakistani D.M.D., in Virginia for almost 6 months. In those months I did every thing ( receptionist, patient coordinator, insurance billing, x-rays, and lot of temporary crowns, retainers) . at the end I got me an excellent referral letter that landed me, my next PAID DA job. And if you want to improve your English, make your self a library card.. and borrow whatever English tapes/CD they have....believe it or not, most US library have a wealth resource in Language learning materials for free

    Good luck zsy_lzy , and God bless
