Hi, I am intersted in doing dentistry at uni and have a few questions that need to be answered!
1) what is the workload at uni for this course because I am someone who has to spend longer to learn certain topics
2) what is the pros and cons of choosing dentistry at uni, I know that people say its very rewarding but at the same time, I do hear people saying that it is not very enjoyable because of the level of stress
3)do you have to get more training after uni to qualify as a dentist because I heard that it will be another 2 years.
4) I have shadowed a dentist before, and the thing is how can I make sure that I actually like it? Because when I did the work experience, I did get intimidated as I can only manage to catch up with A level work by spending all my time on it. And I am terrible at biology even though I do work hard for it
5) finally what can I do to improve my chance of getting an offer? I know about the UKCAT test and the grades but what else?

Hey I'm applying for 2017 too. I am exactly the same as you and would love to see some replies. You should try to get some more work experience in different settings (dental clinics, orthodontists, etc.)
