Episode 480: It's Time to Make a Career Change: Pursuing My Passion To Become a Dentist
Supporter: Viva Learning CE Credits: 0.25 CEU
Guest: Ms. Adrienne Frachtman Release Date: 6/7/2023
Thanks for joining us. I'm Dr. Phil Klein. In the US, in 2022, there were about 11,000 dental school applicants and of those, 6,300 enrolled as a freshman dental student. So essentially, last year, 57% of applicants ended up going to a US dental school. For most of them, their path was pretty predictable... finish college and go straight to dental school. But for some, their decision to apply to dental school happened years later... and only after realizing that their current career, completely different from dentistry, was not what they wanted to do for the rest of their working life. Today we'll be talking to one such dental school applicant hoping to start in 2024. Her name is Adrienne Frachtman, a young lady who already has a career in the health science field and is determined to pursue her dream of becoming a dentist. And I might add that of the more than 450 episodes that we've produced on this show since 2018,, this will be the first time we've talked with a dental school applicant.
