Not an adcom, but imo I think it's viewed poorly if the bulk of your hours are with your parents, as it is in this case. Tagging @Mr.Smile12 for his expertise!I just submitted my application for dental school and I have one concern about it. The bulk of my dental experience has come from shadowing and assisting in my dad's practice (100 shadowing, 600 assisting). I have also shadowed other dentists and orthodontists for about 50 hours total. How do schools view shadowing family members?
