We all know it takes schooling to become a dentist, but just how much schooling?
Dr. D says : “Becoming a dentist usually requires 4 years of undergraduate education to get a Bachelors degree and then another 4 years of dental school. Following dental school, there is additional education available for dentists to specialize.”
So to become a dentist one needs 13 years (K-12) + 4 years of college + 4 years of dental school. So added all up together that’s 21 years of schooling to be a dentist! That’s more than a lifetime for some people, not to mention the expenses that come with it. That’s a lot of work and we’re certainly thankful that Dr. D has put in the time and effort to take care of our teeth.
Did you know that Dr. D is STILL continuing her education? - we’ll tell you more in the coming weeks.
