Specialize or Not?

Earlier you might have seen me mention my interest in specialty, particularly Orthodontics or Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery (OMFS). While I find the OMFS procedures very interesting, whilst doing further research on the field, I have decided that the lifestyle that profession affords is definitely not for me.

So I'm back at the drawing board.


I'm still very interested in Orthodontics but since my debut in the Sim lab at the start of my 2nd year I think General Dentistry might be great after all (keep in mind I have not started seeing patients yet). I find myself asking this question a lot lately: Should I specialize or not? The answer to that question is not yet apparent but in the meantime I have decided to continue doing my research on the specialties and perhaps spend some time shadowing or assisting different specialists in hopes of arriving to an answer to my question.

When I figure it out you'll be the first to know.
