    Any tips for first year students?
    Try to make sure you understand what is expected of you in the course. I personally found it very different to A-levels as you are a lot more independent.

    The suicide rate is relatively high, but is it something for me to worry about ? I don't think so.

    If the rate of something is 0.01% which so happens to be double the rate of every other profession, should I be worried for myself ? In my opinion, no.

    Of course suicide is never a good thing and we should always as a community look at ways to tackle this together.

    There are plenty of dentists who live a happy life. We can look at these are examples and mimic what they are doing. There are plenty of reasons why someone may choose to commit suicide, one huge reason is stress. Dentistry itself can be very stressful. Lots of people who study dentistry don't actually enjoy what they are doing, this can lead to stress in itself, and studying dentistry is a closed door, if you don't like it, you've wasted a lot of years of your life and money, and you're going to have to go back and start over again. This is why people emphasize greatly on studying what you will enjoy doing.
