    Seriously, I don't know what other reasons people choose for dentistry as OP's list could just as well be applied for medicine or any other health profession?


    Fetish for teeth? :unsure:

    I dont really want to look at anal warts ta very much its your perogative you chose to poke someones piles back into their anus I chose to help people improve their confidence by fixing their teeth

    Look this is a dental thread if you don't like it get off it - simple as you'd have thought being a potential medic you'd have had the brains to do so by now

    Improve their confidence? Yeah cause putting braces on every teen you see really helps improve their confidence...

    :p:

    Meh, I dunno. Is that an actual reason for you to choose dentistry? You would say it in an interview would you?

    Actually its a good reason and there are other ways of improving teeth bar braces and there are new technologies making braces less visable now.
    There are other reasons like the high job satisfaction as you can fix problems with a simple procedure, the profession is advancing at an exciting rate and it's a very interesting area to get involved in. Also if i was applying for medcine I'd probs want to specialise at the end and by doing dentistry I'm cutting all that out, specialising from the off.
    People have such a poor perception that I just dont understand I like it and I want to do it as a career, simple as.
    like ask you why be a medic? - because I want to help people - same reason whats the difference there are medics who then do dental degrees and become maxfax surgeons and there are also ENT specialists. Dentists are quintessentially the same bar the fact we have dental degrees and you have medical degrees

    What makes people here assume the dentists after they qualify won't reapply to do medicine and do max fac?

    Dentistry is great I don't wanna put my reasons here for doing it here - cos I don't wanna give people my interview answers tbh. Would be stupid to put it here

    Ignore the girl who's still in her AS. She hasn't even applied yet, and she thinks she knows it all.
    sod you. I clearly know more than you without a doubt. and we ended it as everyone having different tastes - obviously you're trying to reassure yourself by bringing back the same old point. why don't you just stop? i've stopped because i don't feel the need to reiterate my point - whereas you clearly feel the need to - I wonder why... :rolleyes:

    You clearly haven't stopped, if you've jsut posted .... again.
    Why are you even in the dentistry section? GTFO and go to the medical section. :rolleyes:
    Yeah but I didn't end it by insulting you - whereas you did. That's the only reason. Learn some people skills even though you'll not need much as a dentist anyway - ****.

    Oooo feisty. That's just the kind of attitude that will come in handy if you want to be a consultant. Keep it up girl. :rolleyes:
    Sorry but I'm me and I'm not changing. And I'm not going to come across idiotic fools like you that I will respond to in real life in this way - this is tsr. Get your finger out your crack, get off tsr and go get a whiff of real life...or someone's bad breath, because you know, you could do with getting used to it.
    And before you come back with some uselesssssss two year old's reply, no, not my breath. :rolleyes:

    Pathetic really...and respond all you want, but I'm out of here.

    They would teach you the basics, as they would in any healthcare-related course, such as nursing or paramedics.

    When I started this thread I didn't it would turn into a Dentistry vs medicine debate, never mind a full blown argument! Medicine and dentistry each have their pros and cons s a career and a job, and some people are more suited to one or the other. They're both very similar in some ways, yet qute diferent in other ways. I really don't think there should be an argument over which one is BETTER, because frankly they are both very important healthcare jobs that have to be done and both excellent careers to get into.

    The majority of dental applicants aren't applying because of the money. They are applying because it's a good profession and they have a genuine interest in improving the quality of life of others. Yes, that could apply to medicine. Most dental applicants have the ability to become a doctor so it's nothing to do with not being able to make the grades either, for all you cocky wannabe medics. It's the combination of applying science with helping other people to feel better about themselves by improving their teeth. So stop judging dental applicants and be quiet :P
