Hey guys, I'm a foreign trained dentist. I took my part 1, and got the toughest format in which there were no questions from past papers or anything related to the decks. I was making 90's on my past papers but made a 79 on the real one.I plan retaking it in june. My problem is I have to get into dental school by the end of this year, my girlfriend's parents have given me that deadline. I'm a US citizen and am thinking of other options/dental careers I could do. I'm thinking of starting my Masters in public health, that might raise my chances. What about doing a dental hygienist program? Please give my suggestions and ideas.....I really need them!
