If you feel embarrassed about this just say this is why I want to study dentistry because I want to know
how to improve mine and other people's teeth.

Don't mention it on the UCAS form. You'll probably be able to have it all put right at low cost when you get in too..

Yeah but there is a stupidly long waiting list and he wouldn't get them before he was 18 (took like a year and a half - two years from my dentist referring me to the orthodontist to me actually getting braces)

They also don't give braces to everyone under 18 for free - your teeth have to be past a certain threshold.

A lot of opticians wear glasses. Some doctors are obese. It really won't matter at all.

Well you won't get turned away for having bad teeth. Just don't open your mouth too much at the interview. And it's only gaps, they can be fixed by braces so why don't you just go to the dentists and get braces

Your teeth have to be needing braces for it to be free - minor things won't be free

Well some of the best doctors are fat and generally unhealthy.

It doesn't matter, just do your job well and all will be good. I'd be lying if I said people won't notice and won't make comments in secret, but frankly that happens to everyone. It's unavoidable; what isn't is choosing a career you want while still young and being surrounded with options

Hahaha it won't stop you.

Heck, you might even be able to get free dental work done by your fellow colleagues when you enter practice

I can't confirm this but a Dentist pal said when he was a student he got loads of work done free, some by his classmates under supervision from an academic.

Even more reason to apply. I had braces done for free. No other way of getting it done for free after the age of 18 mate!
