Can anyone comment about transitioning from being a dentist in the military to being a private practice dentist? I have always wanted to be in the military, but I also want to be a dentist, so I think this would be the best of both worlds! I am a little worried about the transition because I talked to a private practice dentist who hired a fresh out of the military dentist and he said that the military dentist was not a confident/proficient dentist. So I am a little worried about the transition. I'm hoping it was just this guy's own skills and not the military.
