Well, i hope I don't get booted out of the room, but this is my first time, so please cut me slack. I am NOT a pre-med; rather I am a pre-dental...it is just that this is my first time on here, and I have been reading all of your amusing posts, BUT NO ONE is posting in the pre-dental thread. So I thought I would talk to you fine people. What i want to know is: 1) Any of you know where i can meet any pre-dental students online, to chit-chat and stuff, and 2) After reading much about the two, medical and dental (Barron's and Kaplan kind of lump them together) it does seem that on the average, pre-dents have a little (I hesitate to say) easier time of getting in than pre-meds, yes? Also, do any of you know any pre-dents, and what do you think of them? I, myself, toyed around with the idea of an MD or a DO, but I have ALWAYS had such problems with my teeth, and I DO find them fascinating....I have GREAT looking teeth now, but that is after MUCH $$$$$. I have had about 15 root canals, and 19 crowns in my mouth (among other things). My biggest complaint with dentists is that NONE of them who i talked to ever had a tooth abcess on them, like I did (I had really terrible enamel). I have always identified with people who have had oral troubles...I like making them feel better, helping them. OK, I rambled a little there...just wanting to get some input on anybodies experiences with pre-dents...it just seems like *I* am the only oone who is fascinated by teeth. ------------------ "A setback is only a set-up for a comeback."
