Too many BYU Dentists?
So I've been at BYU for a while now, and in my experience I have noticed that a great deal of BYU students want to become dentist. In fact on the BYU predental club website it say that the BYU predental club is the 'largest and most active club in the nation.'
There are pros to this. Like some great predental classes offered for BYU students. But there are also cons, like too many students from BYU increasing the competition for dental schools. I am wondering what's going on, and why BYU produces so many dentist.
Is there something about the Mormon religion that makes people want to be dentist? Perhaps it is because becoming a dentist is hard (How to Become A Dentist) and LDS people tend to take the hard road. Or, maybe it has something to do with the lifestyle of a dentist after graduation.
I'd be curious to hear your opinions on the matter. Peace out!
