Hi everyone. I just found out that I was accepted to WVU School of Dentistry. However, I have been having second thoughts about not pursuing this avenue and going to Osteopathic Medical School instead. Would anyone like to comment on the pros and cons of this decision? Where I live people do not care if you are a MD or a DO so that certainly does not matter. DO's are very much accepted as doctors. (as they should be of course) However, dentists are not considered doctors. I obviously like what a DO does and what a DDS does so I would like some input from anyone if possible. Furthermore, the large startup costs of a dental practice is worrysome and it does seem much easier to start a medical practice in my area. Please just comment, I would like some help if possible! Earl.
