Maybe shadowing another career would do some good.I totally agree with you guys that shadowing is really boring sometime because you cannot really do anything. The dentist that I have been shadowing asked me what he should write in his LOR. I understand his dilemma cuz i literally do nothing.
lolI think it means that if you don't find watching someone scrape plaque off of some teenager's teeth for the 20th time that day wildly exciting, you should not be a dentist.
That's a pretty good idea. I shadowed an OMFS, a general dentist, an endodontist and an orthdontist. It was awesome, and never boring... although the endodontist seemed like HE was pretty bored...what do you mean? I like observing procedures; however, standing in one spot and doing nothing is boring sometime. May be I shall shadowing different specialists to make it more interesting.
