Why did I choose this course:
Because I know science and memorization are my strength. And my parents are both dentists as well.
About my college education:
Difficult is the patient management, scheduling of patient, getting dental chair for you to work at, the expenses are really high... We enjoy treating people's mouth and giving them a satisfaction.
I cant remember any boring part because 6 years of studying are all fun and memorable.
Interesting are those dissecting of cadavers, thesis, clinic hours restoring teeth, extracting teeth, cleaning the mouth etc..
Dentistry in UE is hard and at times strict (you will be asked to transfer school if you fail some subjects) for you to succeed you really need perseverance, patience, humility, competitiveness, time and money management, good rapport to patients/people and responsibility... You should not give up in the middle because in the end it will all be worth it.
My current job:
I'm a licensed dentist. I treat people's mouth problem and complaints.
Am I using what I learned in college:
Yes, of course. All are practical applications, from diagnostic of complaints, to treatment to prescription.
How long did it take to find a job after graduation:
I traveled for 3 months after our board exam. It's not really hard for me to find a job, it's the job that will look for you. I actually got 6 job offers.
Do I recommend studying Doctor of Dental Medicine:
You will easily get a job especially if you are not choosy, they are the one who will tell you they need a dentist.
Salary level is really really low especially to newly passed dentists. Some just pay 400 for the basic! but others are a bit generous.
Advice to people who are thinking of studying this course:
Just go for it. Be prepared. Enjoy the pre dental course. Save money. And
