Want to become a dentist?
This guide has you covered. Written by a dentist-turned-college-counselor and a college admissions expert, this book provides invaluable information on the route to dental school and provides up-to-date data on programs nationwide.
A Brief Introduction
Written by experts in the dental admissions process, this illuminating book provides data to make informed decisions about your future. Additionally, the text clarifies the dental school application (AADSAS), suggesting ways to organize yourself and better understand what is required. Information on dental schools, separated by region, offers you a valuable resource as you plan your road ahead. The layout of the book is easy to follow.
Securing your place in medical school requires more than just a few science classes and the DAT. Applicants should have a demonstrated understanding of the dental field, express genuine interest, and have additional knowledge or experiences that help the admissions committee choose you over another deserving candidate.
The practice of dentistry is a one-on-one personal experience with patients. While some patients enter for a routine cleaning or checkup, others are in extreme pain or are fearful of what a dentist might find or do. Thus, a positive, upbeat personality and a desire to help people are qualities admissions officers consider when interviewing candidates.
