Dental school is much more than just pulling teeth and doing root canals. As a dentist you can perform research at the RAKCODS, treat patients, get involved with policy making, and perform dental forensics! Not only do dental students learn a clinical procedure, but more importantly they experience the need for health care, in particular, dental care among those less fortunate than themselves. The experience strengthens your desire to help the under-served, their understanding of the problems many face in obtaining oral health care, and their commitment to addressing these issues…which is repeatedly stressed upon in community studies which deals with such issues!
So far my experience in this university has been quite fun…not only does the university provide you with profound education but also takes students on trips to dubai, abu dhabi on monthly basis…where we get the chance to enjoy ourselves after stressful hours of studying!
