  1. Comparing clinician vs clinician and clinic owner vs clinic owner, dentists don't come close to physicians. If dentists have to compare dental clinic owners to physicians practicing medicine (i.e. not owning a business and just doing their thang), then dentists should be aware they're comparing apples to oranges. Dental clinic owners can have a high ceiling because the whole profession is practically centered around selling services. If you are good at marketing and selling, you can do well.
  2. No worries, majority will find a job when they graduate. May not be a location they want or wage they like but in a saturated market, it's hard to leverage as a new grad.
  3. To be fair, we should wait until their decision is made and go from there.
  4. Have you completed all your pre reqs? With a 4.24 and 27 AA/21 PAT and your ECs, I would hesitate to think it's anything related to your AQ or NAQ.
  5. Oh hey, I see you’re here too LOL. Unfortunately, dentistry will face a similar future as pharmacy with corporates taking over not just the clinics, but also the schools. With almost half the clinics being corporate in US and school events and fundings being provided by these big companies, it does not have the brightest future. It’s one of the main reasons why medicine is objectively harder to get into and objectively have a better outlook with government funded residencies acting as a gatekeeper of supply.

  6. That is one of the major cons of being a pharmacist. Unless you are with Costco, it will be hard to expect periodic raises i.e. you are effectively earning less and less every year due to inflation. Even as a manager, you get maybe a $2/hour raise but significantly more responsibilities. My peers work 40+ hours per week (of course no overtime pay, especially with SDM) to hit almost 100k in lower mainland/GVRD, BC. Ideal? No, but I would have a hard time finding non-healthcare jobs that can get you 100k. Go further out to Abbotsford or Terrace and you can find 50+, no doubt.
  7. In case anyone wants a head start on their dental career, this is where you should start.
