Trying to figure out my back up plans if I don't match. Obviously doing an intern year is super helpful in reapplying, but let's say after doing one (or more) you still don't match and you end up going back to general dentistry. I would imagine the intern year could be helpful even then since you'd get great experience in surgery/implants, but how much would the intern year set you back in terms of General Dentistry hand skills? Has anyone done an OMS intern year, then gone out to general practice? I'd love to hear your thoughts, as well as those who did intern years then matched. I'm hoping I match straight out, but I want to be prepared if I need to do an intern year.
