Hello folks! I am new here, and i didnt know where to make my first post, if i am doing this wrong i apologize. Just thought i'd tell a little about myself, and where i currently stand in life I was previously an IT/Programming major. I decided to enter the medical field because i do liek to help people, and i want to be important in the eyes of people around me. My uncle is also a dentist and my aunt manages three dental firms in Dallas Texas. Anyways i have recently changed my major to pre-dental. I am currently attending Lakeland Community College, yes a community college. This will be my second year there and i am starting my next semester taking, biology, chemistry, algebra, and a beginning physics course. I am not exactly familiar with the right path to take when wanting to become a dentist. However, my advisor told me i do not want to complete my schools dental hygenist program, then try and become a dentist. I just wanted to make sure with some of you (who seem quite knowledgable) on what the right path to take would be. I plan on completing the pre-dentistry program at my school then later moving on to a university to major in dentistry. Any advice would be very much appreciated! Thanks you all!
