Members don't see this ad.
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?

Seems like an interview question... Did you get one something like this during your interview? DON'T FALL FOR THIS TRAP!!!!

Interviewee: So if Dentistry and its sub-specialities were a part of medical school, would you still pursue it?

Interviewer: In that case yes. I would do this blah blah blah :D

Interviewer (in his mind): He isn't REALLY interested in Medicine; he would even be a dentist. I guess a rejection is on his way :smuggrin:

Who cares. What if being a doctor paid $1,000,000/year and you didn't have to go to med school? What if all hot women were intelligent? And funny?
