I was working today and this interesting question came up in my mind. What if dental school never existed and was part of medical school? let's say.. you had to go through med school, apply to dentistry specialty. Then after that you would do a fellow in orthodontics or maxillo-facial surgery. How competitive would it be to get in to dentistry residency? I would imagine it would be quiet competitive given the working hours/compensation. What do you guys think?
