    Its going great! - I must admit I found first year a challenge, though I'm really enjoying the course and don't regret choosing dentistry at all!

    Cool, have you finished for the year or not?

    BTW: How much clinical stuff did you get to do this year?

    Yep, I fiished on the 27th of May, - though had a horrible week after that waiting for results and to find out if I had a viva or not - thankfully I didn't.

    At Newcastle we had an "Introduction to dentistry" course, which invovled getting a few lectures on v basic proceedures, a series of sessions invovling tooth identification, a session on clinic doing basic check-up's on each other, a session playing with drills on teeth (that had already been extracted!), and we had four weeks of shadowing fourth years on clinic - and had a report to write up afterwards. Not a lot really, but it was useful to give us a bit of an idea where we are heading, with having to learn all the heart, lungs, liver etc etc and other boring bits in 1st year.
