I'm at that crossroads where I have to seriously debate the dental school vs. medical school topic. Everything I've read and seen about the dental profession I really like, ie. subject matter, job satisfaction, being not only a doctor but an entrepreneur, quality of life, the money, etc. However, one thing kind of bugs me about dental school....the fact that it doesn't seem to have as good a support network for its graduating students as medical schools. Am I wrong on this assumption? I mean graduating medical school students basically know what they'll be doing after med school as they enter their residencies, but what about dentists? What is a graduating dentist to do? Are you just supposed to walk into a bank the day after graduation and ask for financing of your private practice? Is there a solid residency structure in place that can steer you towards good residencies to apply for? What resources exactly do graduating dentists have to help them begin their careers?
