This one's just for curiosity. How do the basic science years (mostly year 1 and 2) compare between that of dental and medical school? Many of the classes appear to be the same-histology, gross, biochem, ect. Is the level of depth and clinical correlation similar to med? I hope some dental students can respond, and not just a bunch bunch of speculative predents. Another take- how would a dental student following year 2 perform on a USMLE step 1 exam relative to a med student (I hope significantly worse)? Its not like I'm envious or anything, just curious.
