    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: )

    ....you tell your babysitter's cousin, your postman, and the homeless guy on the street that you were accepted.





    (And don't worry - you WILL be accepted!!! This forum is proof to us all!)

    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're about to bomb every single one of your final exams, and for the first time you agreeingly nod your head when the frat boy next to you says "who gives a ****"

    Note: Unfortunately, I haven't been accepted yet. This is just what I observed in my usually otherwise Type A personality classmates

    you're waiting in a long line to weigh a cup of spit to tell someone about their salivary flow :scared:


    or


    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


    or


    you've made a custom tray for something other than the oral cavity :cool:

    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.

    You're ready to give your boss the two-fisted bronx cheer. :laugh:
