Hi,
I recently graduated from school, and want to be a dentist. My first preference for UAC is, Bachelor of science and doctor of dental medicine at UYSD. However I want some backup options, in case I don't get in.

I need help deciding what to put as my second and third preferences on UAC and can't decide between a Bachelor of Medical Science or a Bachelor of Oral Health?

Which is a better pathway into dentistry and why?

What has a higher acceptance rate into dentistry? (as i need to think in the long term)

If anyone is actually studying dentistry and can give me some advice, I would really appreciate the help.
thanks :)

I think Bachelor of Oral Health would be the better choice.

Not studying dentistry yet, but have an idea for you. Actually, I want to study dentistry too, so I want to ask my dentist for help choosing a university. I think it’s the best option I’ve come up with recently. I guess doctors want to have nice specialists to get replaced by when they retire.

Why do you say so?
BOH has much higher job prospects than Medical Science. Medical Science has almost none.
Both can be used as pathway into Dentistry.
Pathways include non-standard entry (through GPA +- UCAT) and post-grad (through GAMSAT & GPA).
