I am beginning dental school in the fall and am interested in possibly specializing after d-school. If I go the military route: 1) Can I enter a post-doc program directly after d-school or would I have to practice general dentistry for 3-4 yrs before receiving further training? 2) If I can enter a post-doc program directly after d-school, is it true that a few years of this training can count towards your pay-back? 3) If someone is sincerely interested in specializing, is it generally better to just go the civilian route and finance your education? Thanks for your help!
