So we are the future dental professionals ...but how does that affect our lives as dental students? I have several friends in medical school who have somewhat 'radical' personal appearances ranging from dreadlocks and dyed hair to tattoos and piercings. They dont seem to have any problems. But how are things in dental school? We hit clinics before med students do. I have a mohawk (not punk mohawk, more like trendy mohawk) that Ive grown quite fond of and I have some pretty big tattoos on my arms that definitely show when wearing scrubs. How will this be received in dental school. Dont mistake me - Im a professional individual when it comes to getting down to business. But Ive got some personality traits that Im not ready to get rid of until I start practicing (be that in clinicals or when I go in the Army). Anybody have any thoughts?
