Of course not, during the interview we actually get a check-up. It's actually so schools can examine our teeth and make sure they are actually perfect.

How do you think anyone from the UK gets in? Haha, I kid, I kid. :)

I know dentists with mouths full of fillings. If you've got bad teeth, it likely was contributed to before you wanted to become a dentist, so yeah, don't worry. Just be sure to brush and floss NOW! hehe

Bad teeth won't hurt you. But bad breath will kill you, well maybe the interviewer.

good teeth are good to getting into dental school. Just don't pick your nose during the interview. :idea: that's kept me out of dental school for 3 years.
