    Hey! just wondering if anybody can give me some advice! I have always wanted to work in the field of denistry but when applying for university i did not have the right A-levels (I did chemistry, business studies and french, but biology was required) so i decided to do accounting and management which I enjoyed at school. Now in my 3rd year, I have very little interest in accounting and still want to pursue a career in dentistry. what would be the best way for me to do this, or is it not possible now? do you get finance for doing dentistry as a second degree? and also what about dental hygiene?

    sorry if this has already been answered elsewhere but I couldnt find any information relevant to my situation!

    Thanks!!

    Firstly, I think you should finish off your degree in accounting and finance. Next, you can apply to dental schools offering the 6 year course. They offer a year "0" where you are taught the science knowledge they expect. This is specifically for students who did not take the required A levels. It is very competetive though.

    I don't know about your other two questions though, sorry.
