i've been lurking around this site for a while. for lack of sleep and boredom, i want to discuss the post-dental school life. i am a 4th year dental student looking into an associateship in a general practice. i am in the northeast area and looking to practice here or to move to southern cali. if anybody wants to discuss associateship opportunity or gripe about regional boards and state licensing exams, i have a gripe too! anyways, let's see if we can get some conversation rolling.
