  1. I have a bunch of family in the states and I personally shifted to the states when I got my green card but I’m still in dental school. Generally from what I’ve seen, the employment climate in the states is great. As a Canadian with no green card (I’m assuming?), you’ll need to enter under TN visa. Pretty easy to get but as for seeking employment, remember your competing against American grads. You’ll need to convince prospective employers that you should be chosen over local dentists, that’s the biggest hurdle. Also I was told that you cannot purchase a practice under TN visas, you will need to process for permanent residency to be able to do that. There are good opportunities available on the east and west coast, I’ve seen saturation being a bigger issue in Canada than the states recently. Hope this helps.
  2. Just out of curiosity, I was wondering what PT private clinic owners would make in Ontario/Alberta/Sask (rural vs urban would be helpful if that info is available). I was talking with a friend about how PT clinic owners should make hundreds of thousands of dollars before taxes at a busy clinic but I was told its not the case. Does anyone have ballpark figures for PT clinic owner salaries if suppose someone owned 2 private clinics in a slightly saturated area? Thanks!

    UofT/UWO Waitlist movement

    Heard from few friends at western that the seat was filled and the new student started today. Western only accepted 55 students this year and they held onto the seat for a deferal student but that student decided to not show up so the seat was allocated to someone else.

    The slow decay of dentistry

    I think it’s more about flexibility than anything. If your willing to work a little outside he GTA for example, you will find a good paying job and have the ability to build a practice. Or, you could move to the states as strawberryjams has mentioned but that would bring another set of issues.

    UofT/UWO Waitlist movement

    That means your normal waitlist and from the looks of it, your chances are extremely slim as HWL hasn’t even cleared. Tuition should be due sometime in the first week of August
  7. I heard a few of my friends on the waitlist saying schulich only moved 8-9 spots so far. But yes I know 4 people on the HWL at schulich.

    using LOC for investment purposes

    What about taking your LOC and investing in the states? Does that get reported to OSAP? I’ve been giving it some thought recently and I’m assuming there is no cross border reporting?
  9. I think people are referring to the infinite momentum ($99) but you're still right. The payback is substantially higher than the annual fee. I've earned $650 back this year through my regular purchases (gas, groceries, etc.) using the infinite momentum and benefitted from the waived annual fee. I would say infinite passport/infinite momentum. 4% cashback on groceries/gas, 2% on drug stores/recurring purchases and 1% on everything else on top of great travel medical insurance and other benefits (extended warranty, etc.). The infinite passport is great for the lounge visits and travel rewards accumulation, plus both cards are visa and accepted widely compared to AmEx. If your advisor knows the right people at 40 King (Scotia HQ), they'll be able to pull off a lot more than you think
  10. Hiking taxes, figuring out ways to pay for dental and pharm plans, don’t forget about making Ontario a sanctuary province. Where is all this money coming from? Oh yeah the doctors, dentists, etc who make too much money
  11. Doug Ford will be the next premier based on the current polls. Sincerely hope NDP don't form government or combine with the liberals to form a coalition. That would be the worst
  12. For those looking to get infinite momentum + infinite passport with Scotia, go to your advisor and state that other branches of Scotia are offering it. Tell them to touch base with Scotia HQ in Toronto, the Plaza branch is approving Infinite Momentum + infinite passport visa annually fees waived as long as you have a LOC.

    Paying off Dental School Debt?

    Were you able to budget for vacations during the year or was that something you had to trade off? I'm assuming to pay down your debt quickly and retire by 50, you'd have to drive a used car like a civic, eat home cooked food and cut down on entertainment expenses while working 3 days a week. Or am i wrong?
  14. It's always like that. Med school offers just came out last week, the bulk of the movement happens 2 weeks after med school results when they have to make decisions and its a ripple effect that starts moving the waitlist.
  15. I can confirm the high waitlist is moving. A friend of mine has got off the HWL last week.
