  1. Thanks for replying! Would either of you say that the pain associated with dentistry would've given you pause about going into the field, had you known earlier? Like McMaurader said, any repetitive job is bound to cause some damage (for example carpal tunnel in office workers) but in your opinion, do think dentists experience anything egregious?
  2. I've heard a lot on these forums that being a dentist can be physically demanding (mostly for your hands, neck, and spine) but I was hoping for maybe a bit more elaboration on that. For example, does it impede your quality of life as you get older? Does that put a limit on how long dentists are able to practice? The dentists I shadowed didn't really seem comfortable with me asking questions that were that personal so I didn't know where else to ask.
  3. Would that be a change for this year? Because the line about all parts (minus manual dexterity) of the DAT being used was there last year as well. I got a 17 for PAT and was invited to an interview last year so I doubt it was used as a cut-off. Or if it was, the cut-off must have been fairly low so I wouldn't see the point in having it.
  4. I was looking at the range of averages accepted at UWO since the ABS was introduced and it looks like in general, the lowest averages are around 83-84. I was just wondering if anyone knows if those people have graduate degrees since they get bonus points in their applications. I also have an average around the mid-80s so is it a longshot for me to get accepted with just an undergrad degree (assuming my DAT, ABS, and interview are fine)? I know it's hard to give a concrete answer, but any insight would greatly be appreciated!
