being a dentistry student needs a lot of effort, one must give his best in order for him to pass not only the subjects matter but also the requirements to pass in the clinic. it is also very hard for the clnician to find patient which is suited for a specific case, and it is very tiring being a dentistry student. it's hard to be a dentistry student not only because of the subjects but as well as financial aspect, you need a lot of money not only in the tuition but as well in the clinic.

I once majored in this subject for one year as a freshman in the university. Then I shifted to clinical medicine for a doctor's degree. It seems that courses of clincial medicine is more tough because all my pre-classmates feel lucky when they compare their schedules with mine. As for financial problem, it is not largely concerned in China.Nearly students in all major have to pay equal amount of money for tuition.

Hi, emelinada! Yes, you are absolutely right when you said that dentistry is not easy. In fact, my uncle (the younger brother of my father) is a dentist and he told me before that dentistry is very tough, especially the practical part of it, and you really need to have the passion and interest in this field if you want to do it. I don't see my hand skills to be good, so I chose Pharmacy instead. I also have a few friends doing dentistry in Australia at the moment, and even those who are quite brilliant are finding it tough and difficult to handle. Anyway, if you're doing dentistry at the moment, I wish you the best of luck and do persevere on even though it's not easy. As long as you've put your heart and soul into what you want to do and achieve, you will be able to pull through it no matter what the situation is. Take care, my dear friend!
