^ I like the words thats coming out. But im not really a lover of the proffesion dentist, ill just do that to earn money and do science as a hobby beside that.
The fun thing in sweden is that u have patients after 1,5 year of study and beside that u get the option if u want a Phd.
So ill basicly have patients after 1,5 year and then go and have fun in my laboratory.


So do you live in Sweden? I don't know how the European dental schools are run. You should do some research.

If you want to pursue dentistry solely for the money, FORGET ABOUT PURSUING DENTISTRY!!!

It ain't gonna work for you because you have to have the passion of working with your patients, looking into their mouths (and not all of them have pretty teeth and gum lining!), deal with the dental assistants you hire, manage a practice (which is equivalent to managing a business) and lastly, have great hand skills.

For me, I am pursuing dentistry because I want to open up my own practice, and at the same time, be a part-time dental school instructor.

And Takashi is from the UK, so his input is different from the US dentistry programs.

mmhmm
Dentistry is offered by fewer universities than medicine here but they still have lower entry requirements shrug.gif

I guess im going to dentistry business. Ill test it out for half a year.
I think my parents wants to move to canada and i know dentists gets alot of pay but im not sure outside Sweden how the proffesion is.
Is it even fun? I think most ppl think MD is more fun
Im thinking of becoming some kind of jaw tooth surgion and probably try to get a Phd at the school while studying


If youre planning on moving to Canada, stick with dentistry, if youre about making more money, and espicially if that's what youre more interested in.

Canada isnt like the US, in terms of heathcare. It's probably more like where youre at now, in Sweden, if that's correct. In America where healthcare is a business you will be able to see specialized doctors making a lot, but it's not like that in socialist countries where the government rules the heathcare.

You wont see any doctors here in Canada making a quarter million, like someone else in this thread mentioned, that would be insane and there would be so much public outcry.

LOL! A law student talking smack about dentistry! Man, being a lawyer is worse and more stressful than being a doctor, dentist or pharmacist!!!

This is why a lot of attorneys I know smoke. Simply to relief the stress they endure.

Good luck with your job. I heard horror stories of attorneys sleeping over night in their office to research documents pertaining to their cases. Many attorneys hardly have a life, rarely see their wife and children and some attorneys end up divorcing their spouse. However, a lot of "crook" attorneys make a lot of $$$ by slurping it off of their client's check book.

BTW takashi, I was formerly a pre-law student back in college. Looking back at the changes I've made in my career, I am happy that I backed out of law.

Not really, pretty well paid.
The system you have in America for lawyers is $hitty embarassedlaugh.gif

Since when was I talking "smack" about dentistry? Stop being so insecure you fool.
The point is that the entry requirements for dentistry are lower than for medicine in England, no matter how much you spout off about irrelevant things it doesn't change that. That doesn't mean the entry requirements aren't still high, I said lower not low icon_rolleyes.gif eejit.

lol so?

where did you study? they don't fully accept a lot of degrees from other countries. i know a lot of relatives that want to move here but there degrees aren't recognized and they don't want to go to school again.

EDIT: oh, i assume you studied in america. you'll be fine.

I could care less and I still see law as a stressful high work hour profession. It may be considered a great profession in East Asia and Europe, but many Americans think attorneys are crooks. laugh.gif

You were hinting that dental school is easy to get admitted to compared to dental school.

dude, I don't know about the british dental schools, but the US dental schools are competitive to get admitted to. Perhaps there's a misunderstanding between the both of us because we're talking about dental programs in two different countries. Maybe the British dental schools have lower or less admissions requirements than the british medical programs.

lol it is, I've been getting up at 6am to be ready to commute embarassedlaugh.gif
If I didn't commute it'd be alright. Wouldn't say its more stressful than being a doctor though, working for yourself is as stressful as you make it.
Its worth it for the money beerchug.gif

icon_neutral.gif You wrote the wrong thing but anyway the entry requirements are lower. Like I said before, for medicine the A-level grade requirements go up to AAA, for dentistry the highest is AAB as far as I'm aware.

Errr, wrong. This is why there is something called a "Physician Exchange" where patients call this organization so that they can in turn, page the doctor. The doctor then calls you back to check up what the patient's problem is. I know pediatricians are on call, oncologists, radiologists, etc. Sure, not all the doctors are on call. But the majority of them are on call, or have an obligation to answer phone calls at 3AM.
Why do you think doctors always carry pagers with them???

Dentists do NOT have this on call obligation, and I have never heard of a dentist answering phone calls in the middle of the night for his patient.

Doctors working at a hospital, or even private practice doctors working in a hospital building have work hours set by the hospital administrators. There is more free time and leeway in being a dentist than a doctor. Dentists also have more time to spend with their families and friends.

I meant not all doctors are on call. It depends if they work in a hospital or not. biggthumpup.gif

My friends' parents are both doctors and they spend a LOT of family time together. So it IS possible. biggrin.gif

QUOTE
No. I'm talking about the small unaccredited medical schools in teh US! There are tons of them in the US. I can't believe you don't know of their presence!

There are many in California, some in the midwest, NYC, etc.

Really? Where?

BTW you seem to talk a lot of smack about every profession except dentistry. icon_rolleyes.gif
