I am currently in Year 12 at sixth form at Smestow Sports College. I have always had a passionate interest in dentistry and in particular, cosmetic dentistry and prosthodontics. Currently at A level I am studying biology, chemistry, maths and also French. I have started to look into universities for next year. Where did you study dentistry and is there any advice you can give me with regards to this career path, and also specialising? Thank you.

Hi. My Daughter’s Dental Intern Has Changed While She’s Having Orthodontic Correction. Could You Help?Thursday, September 25th, 2014
Hello Mark, could you tell me what causes relapse in orthodontically aligned teeth? How does an incorrect mid-line in the lower set affect this? Please offer your advice regarding this as my daughter is undergoing treatment in a university dental college, and the doctor has asked me to search for the answer. My daughter has had braces treatment for the last two years. The dentist who was working on her completed the course and left the college and now another intern has taken over. Any advice you can offer us would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
I Want To Study As An Oral Surgeon. If I Studied For This In India, Would I Be Able To Use This Qualification Abroad?Monday, July 21st, 2014
Hello Dr Moore. I could do with your help. I have finished my BDS and I want to do a MDS in oral surgery. But ideally I would want to go abroad, but finance is an issue. Is there any way by which I can do MDS in India and then go abroad and practice with the same qualification? (esp. in USA or Canada). I know about DDS but is it worth going abroad and studying dentistry all over again?
I want to be sure of what I want to do before I commit to something. Also I have always dreamt of studying abroad but I don’t know what to do now. Please help me with this issue. Your advice would be greatly received. Thank you.
Good Day. I Would One Day Like To Become A Dentist But I Am Confused. Could I Own My Own Practice If I Specialized In A Particular Subject?Friday, July 18th, 2014
Good day, Dr Moore. I want to become a dentist, but I am confused. Is general dentistry a speciality among the 9 specialities because I want to one day own my own private practice as a dentist? Could I own my private practice if I specialize in any of the 9 specialities like orthodontics or periodontics? I am good at chemistry and maths but not so much at biology. I know all subjects are important but which are the subjects that are really important for dentistry? If I decide to become a doctor of dental medicine, would I be able to carry out operations like cleaning and others? Thank you in advance for your reply.
Good morning. My niece is studying to become a dentist in Venezuela, she is 21 years of age. She is finishing her second year with excellent grades. We are looking for a summer course in England, related to her studies. Even though she lives in Venezuela she speaks English very well.
I would appreciate any of recommendations you can make about places or courses that she can do. Whether it be Universities, or clinics? She doesn’t need something particularly official, she just needs to reinforce her English in a course related to her career. She is also open to a subject related to dentistry, theory or practice and we hope that you recommend anything to us. Thank you very much.
Dear Sir,I am currently studying for my A-Levels at Woodhouse Sixth Form College in London. For my A-Levels I have taken biology, chemistry, psychology and math, and I am hoping to pursue a career in dentistry once I have completed my A-Levels As an extracurricular activity I have taken up an Extended Project Qualification. The EPQ provides an additional AS-Level, and can be based on any area that an individual chooses to explore. I have based my Extended Project on cosmetic dentistry, and the question I am investigating is: does the increase in cosmetic dentistry reflect todays image conscious society? I would be grateful if you could provide your opinion on this question. This would be much appreciated. Thank You Regards,
