    Hey, I'm a hygienist who's about to take my 2nd DAT and burned out from the whole Dental idea. I'm having a growing desire to move into medicine. I'm so glad I found your video. How can I get in contact with you?

    I'm a high school senior I just got accepted to University for electrical engineering but I want to be a dental hygienist. Should I go to a community college and do the pre requisite classes there then apply to a program or go to the university for Electrical engineering and do pre reqs there then after 1-2 years apply to the program????

    I’m looking at dental hygienist school the program is 2 years. But I want to pursue my education and also become a dentist in the future. Will I be able to become a dentist if I’m a dental hygienist first?

    I’ve been a dental hygienist for little over five years. I am very passionate about preventative education. I love how dental hygiene has lead you to Osteopathic Medicine

    I'm so glad I found you! I'm in my second semester of Dental Hygiene school but I know I would like to go further. I'm nervous because I just turned 27 and I feel like I need to be done with school by now but it seems to never end. Thanks for the inspiration.

    I’m a senior and high school and I have a question I want to have a career in a dental field is it ok to start off at community college or should I go straight into a university?

    Girl, I’ve been thinking for the LONGEST to change into Med instead of Dental. What’s been holding me back is my age as I’m in my late 20s. Thank you for this video and please do more with detail! I’d love to watch!

    Love your videos! I have been doing dental hygiene for 5 years now and I love it! I am considering applying to dental school! Watching your channel inspired me to vlog about my experience this far as a hygienist too!

    Hi! Thanks for checking out my video. I came to check out your channel !My twin sister is a dental assistant actually ! Great to hear your story. 😊😊😊

  22. Your Jewish med school is pretty good 🙂 I almost went their for PA school but ultimately decided I wanted to stay instate.

    Nice video and I know you will definitely become an awesome doc 🙂

    p.s I personally like to choose DO's over MD's as my PCP since they are always more down to earth and equal in training and knowledge 😀
