    Hey everyone
    I am currently resitting year 12 because my AS Results weren't good enough to apply for dentistry (BCcc) and I want to get better AS results so I can apply this time round. I emailed every dental school and 4 I want to apply to
    Said they accept resit applicants. I just want to know if anyone was in this situation and got in and if they look at me differently when I apply. I need lots of work experience and volunteering but I don't know what to do apart from the typical care home work to make me stand out as a candidate, need your help!! And sorry excuse my grammar.

    If the dental schools say it's fine then it's fine. Why would you take the advice of someone on here over the dental school you're applying to anyway?
    You want a range of relevant work experience in different settings to show that you have a good understanding of what a dentists does and what skills and qualities are required.
