Why is it that there are so few books on DATS, dental schools, or anything about dentistry? Why is it that in the U.S new's report on the top graduate and professional schools, dental school is never mentioned? (but other things are like....Masters in English or history are talked about and ranked?) I suppose dental school is more mentioned than optometry or podiatry so that's good. But WHY!! Is dentistry not important? I am sick of hearing that everyone applies to medical school and doctors this, doctors that, or lawyers--how many of those are there????
