I'm thinking about what specialty of Dentistry I should go into, or if I should specialize at all.For a very long time I have been pretty hooked on Orthodontics (study and treatment of malocclusion aka placement of braces) but recently Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery has peaked my interest. Maybe it's all that Anatomy and dissecting cadavers that I did last semester. Either way it's a very interesting and versatile field where you're constantly tested and it seems like you'd never get bored. Might I add that it's muy muy lucrative! I mean, after 4 yrs of Dental School and 4-6yrs thereafter in residency, I'd say it better be!
