hey yall! I will be graduating from my DDS program very soon.As I am planning to start applying to graduate programs, I have narrowed down my choices to only 3 specialities: Endo, Pedo and Prosthodontics. Ortho is out of question with my stats (part 1- 89; part 2- 88) and OMFS does not fascinate me due to the amount of time required for completion. Perio is so boring..as are the other non-clinical subjects. Honestly speaking, I am in a situation where I can actually create and grow my interest towards any of the remaining choices.... Now, out of the three, my personal inclination is towards Pros due to the diverse nature of the subject (removable, fixed, impant and maxillo-facial) AND due to the fact that I feel that the subject has tremendous amount of potential to grow, with the current rate of growth of geriatric population, baby-boomers etc etc....Am I correct here? Will Prostho really be a hot field in future? and do Prosthodontists really make good money?? Endo is fine with me but am scared that life would be too monotonous in a canal! but Ive also heard that Endodontists make more than Prosthodontists, and that too most Endo programs are only 2 years compared to 3 years of Prostho! In contrast I've also heard that most general dentists do the Endo work themselves, hence by-passing Endodontists! My stake on Pedo is simply due to the fact that among all residencies Pediatric Residencies provide the maximum amount of stipend!! but what scares me is whether it is lucrative enough to be a Pedodontist in the long run...i mean how many would actually call upon a Pedodontist for consultation purposes? Can anyone brief me more on this issue? Also, can I apply to like 2 specialities at a time (ofcourse no two diferent ones in the same school) ALL OPINIONS ARE WELCOME! thank you so much in advance!
