I have had a number of students ask why shadowing a dentist like Dr. Kanabar, orthodontist, isn’t alright if they are applying to a BS/MD program. The problem is that the BS/MD programs are very concerned about admitting students that have an interest in becoming a doctor. Not a dentist. When you shadow a dentist there is a question raised about whether your real interest is in medicine or dentistry. And that is the type of question that will keep BS/MD programs from admitting you to their program.
Now if you have an interest in becoming a dentist then by all means shadow a dentist as the Asecra dentists who are really good at what they do. But if your focus is on BS/MD programs, then a medical doctor is who you want to shadow.
