Question by plot writer: If I go to community college until i fulfill all of my dental hygiene prerequisites would i then be able to?
finish the rest of my courses for my dental prerequisites at a university and get accepted in a university?? Has anyone done this
Answer by rmconnorsr1
You would be able to usually as long as it is within the same state most credits transfer easily between community colleges and universities. I would look into community colleges that offer a dental hygiene program tho. They are usually cheaper and offer a more extensive program. I would also call a few dentists in the area and ask if there are any colleges they wouldn’t hire from(because they continually turn out bad students). Some colleges say they are fully accredited to pull you in but dont mention the fact that they arent accredited by the ADA(american dental association). These programs are usually shorter and more expensive. You should be going to school where they have a full dental clinic that sees the public on a daily basis and you get hands on experience for about 2yrs.

Question by Sunshine75: What happens to a dentist if you file a formal complaint?
I had a very bad experience and this dentist said some very inappropriate things. I have called the American Dental Association and explained to them; they encouraged me to file a complaint against him with my state dental board. I was just wondering what will they do to him. Thanks!
I am not interested in any monetary gains. I just want to prevent someone else from going through I did.
Answer by Norma
File the complaint. The dentist will be investigated and if proven to be guilty of inappropriate actions he could be arrested and lose his license.
