Hi everyone,
I would like to know your opinion on my question:

is dentistry a field where if you work hard, you will be good at it?

because there are some fields, I think, particularly in the sciences, where you can't really be as good no matter how hard you try, unless you're primed as a kid.

thanks.

Huh??? Dental school is 40 hours/week of unrelenting science.

And what are you talking about, anyway? I got almost straight A's in my science classes and I promise it wasn't because my mother read organic chemistry to me at bedtime.

what he said.

science is not a talent-- you just have to work hard at it to learn. more input= more output

I believe so, absolutely.

Your post doesn't say you are referring to dental school, but to dentistry. I think you can really perfect your skills the more you practice them.
