  1. I don’t think they’d win either. But it’s definitley possible that liberals would propose a similar idea.
  2. I’m not even in dental school yet lol. I just thought it would be good since a lot of people don’t even go to the dentist in the first place.
  3. Pretty neat, especially for us haha https://www.cbc.ca/news/politics/ndp-singh-health-policy-federal-election-1.5175899

    The slow decay of dentistry

    Yeah @McMarauder I can understand that. The one thing everyone needs to realize is life isn’t a competition with you and the next guy. It’s really just you trying to be the best you possibly can be. You vs. you.

    The slow decay of dentistry

    Very true. I feel like the competitive nature of the field is what drives those thoughts. You need good marks and have to outcompete a shit lot of other students over so many years. Later you’ve got to compete for jobs, patients, and specialities if you choose. Obviously salary is determined by those factors too. When you’re immature you consider people through that competitive lens. Some people just mature later than others, or never at all hahah.

    You just tore that guy a new one hahah I agree. Money is necessary but not everything. Especially when you’re a dentist and already making a lot more than most Canadian citizens.

  8. Why is McGills tuition so low? Federal government handouts to Quebec?

    Okay but still the CDA is probably mandated to be looking out for the oral health of all Canadian citizens. They cant just be going unchecked and doing whatever they want. We’re biased since we want to be dentists. Does corporate dentistry present any benefits from the perspective of a patient? I.e. quicker service, lower rates.

    They need too. Simple supply and demand issue I guess. Identify the demand then control the supply and thus intake of dentists. I wonder if we sent them an email what their official position would be on the issue. Does anyone know if they’ve publicly addressed the issue? Also how are the CDA leaders chosen? Is it an election? Or just passing on the torch to whoever’s already in the circle lol.
  11. What would happen if you dropped your lowest year in your GPA calculation? If 4 or more years are done schools usually drop the year with the lowest GPA in the calculation. Given it’s not the most recent year. If you have a decent GPA in the remaining 3 years, you can just boost it with a bunch of electives. Taken online or at Uni.

    If the field of dentistry really is in such decline, shouldn’t the CDA be doing something about it?

    https://sydney.edu.au/content/dam/corporate/documents/faculty-of-medicine-and-health/guides/md-dmd-international-admissions-guide.pdf page 11. Minimum 2.7 gpa for Sydney university. And they don’t consider in the admissions process. Dr. Sauce, email oztrekk. They’ll tell you what you can apply to and if you need anything.
