Too bad the "search" is not working right now... You definitely can get these questions answered by looking at past posts. All of these have been talked about extensively in the past....adamistheman said:I think i decided i wanted to be a dentist. If i were to go along with it what kinda courses would i take in school? what is like the average yearly pay? Also how many years of schooling?
i think the person who said 8 years of school must have included the undergraduate years. or, if you specialize after dental school (4 yrs) then that could add some years to it too. so either way, it's a looooooong time!adamistheman said:man i hate phyics...i asked somewhere else and they said it was 8 years of school...175 k wow that is nice
Yes you have to take those prerequisite classes at a 4 yr college preferably. With the increasing competition nowadays, most schools want you to have received a bachelors degree by the time that you enter dental school. So if your counting years after high school it would be a total of 8 years to become a general dentist. The only school i know of that has a shorter program is University of the pacific. They have a 3 year dental school so it would take you 7 years total. Or if you go to their undergraduate college you can do 2 years of undergraduate school and 3 years of dental school totalling five.. But i think to qualify for that program you might need extremely outstanding grades.adamistheman said:so there i have to take classes at a diff school before i can go into dental school? sonfused kinda
