mynameistino said:Ok, i have heard alot of stories from people saying hat Dentist has the most suicidal rate in the country? is it really true? I read some article saying that it is false but i hear it more as a fact than a myth. WHat do you think?
PDizzle said:This topic came up at my interview and I stated that I will do my part to dispell this myth and really try NOT to kill myself once I became a dentist. They responded that they didn't care if I waxed myself just that I wait until I graduate. I thought that this was kinda strange coming from an AdCom.
Sprgrover said:This is one of those can-o-worms topics that always makes me cringe as a moderator. The rumor that dentists are crazy-prone to suicide is just that - a rumor. It is based on an obscure study from the 1930's that used flawed techniques. Run a search, whenever the function is available, here on SDN and you will find multiple threads dedicated to this very topic.
