I was going to add this to the old "you know you're a pre-dent when..." thread, but I couldn't find it. I'll start off.

You know you're going to dental school when you start carrying other people's teeth in your coat pocket. :eek:

(I keep forgetting to bring a jar to the office I work at. So I put the teeth in baggies instead and take them home nightly...except last night I forgot to take them out, so they were still there this morning when I got work :laugh: )

When you stop yourself from eating candy, because you think now as a future dentist it is unacceptable.

when you start noticing how nasty some people's teeth look. I mean, seriously, some smokers, their teeth look gross.

you go to take a bite out of your hamburger but you realize that your hands are caked in a thick layer of ivorene (sp) dust

I'm pretty sure he's referring to his acceptance letter, though I can't say I particularly appreciated the mental images that resulted from reading that post. Lets try to keep it PG in the future, shall we?

You know you have been accepted to Dental schools when:

You continue to visit SDN with the same rigor as you did in the pre-acceptance era, if not more frequently. Only this time, you assume the role of a Pre-dental counselor role of the stressed-out, unsure pre-dent you once were.

To add to this specifically...
When your roommate thinks you were destined to be a dentist because she came to you with a toothache and you told her to floss (she had just eaten an apple). Low and behold, she flosses out a large chunk of apple and praises you as the best dentist ever, forgetting the fact you haven't even stepped foot into your first dental school class yet.

Yep I agree. i've told ALL my friends and some of the professors i'm friendly with. I've had the most fun telling all those people that told me (directly or indirectly) that I wouldn't make it. Man, You should see their faces when i lay the info on them with the most innocent of facial expressions and the most enthusiastic smile. First the expression of shock (lasts for like 2 seconds) then they catch themselves and go "wow, I'm happy for you! Congratulations!" (fake smile poorly disguising their unbelief-induced shame). One guy was so shocked he just kept repeating, "university of Pennsylvania, wow!" he must have said it like 10 times in the 3 minutes I spent with him (he's the one that interrupted me and replied, "IF you get in." When i said something like, "when i get accepted I will.... that was back in July :D ). Another guy 'advised' me to forget about dentistry that "it is too competitive and it's hard to get in." He did the worst at concealing his displeasure-- he didn't! :laugh: :laugh: I just thank God.
