hey guys, I am new at SDN and wanted your help. I am a freshmen at a community college and I am planning to pursue Dentistry once I go to grad school. I have a question regarding the importance of volunteering in this field. I will be doing Undergraduate research next semester that is spring '09, and I also have an opportunity to do internship for research in the summer. I know research is a very important thing if I want to go into a health field, but I am also planning to go to my native country during the summer and do some volunteering work in the rural part. Now I can only do one of the above things, and I do not know which one is more important volunteering work or research. Which one of the above two will look more impressive for undergrad and grad school. Thanks I appreciate all the comments and ideas.
