a dentist-to-be..insyaAllah

hmm..if u ask me, what is the best thing about dentistry..? my answer would be.., hmm..i dont know...=/

if i were to tell the history, how i first stumbled to this path which was so 'foreign' and 'unwanted' in the first place, i might as well just write a book. To make a long story short, it all happenned one night, 5 years ago, the night that changed and created my destiny today. Where i stand rite now. Wahh..sounds like a synopsis of a major movie in the making..ehhe. Well, basically, i like to see it as 'love after marriage'..my relationship with dentistry... Perhaps this is like what they say, u can plan, u can dream, but whatever happens or how it turns out later, it's all Allah's plan..alhamdulillah.

hmm..looking at my seniors in their dark pink graduation robe..( which much to my dismay, ill be wearing that 'pink' robe next year, insyaAllah..ohh, why of all colours, it has to be pink..?!). After 5 years ..finally the awaited and glorious day arrived. The look of proud and happiness on their parents' faces, the joy and laughter..( sigh). The end of one chapter of life, and a new and more challenging one awaits in front. Hmm..a dentist..? How in the world i got myself in here..( still scratching my head, dubiously finding the answer..)

18 years ago, the word 'dentistry' never, i repeat, never crossed my mind. And look where i am today, ....life can be so unpredictable and beyond imaginings some times. And from the blurry, vague feelings towards my new life, eventually...and slowly..or i dunno how, im beginning to like and enjoy dentistry. More than i had expected it myself. Found myself excited during Oral Diagnosis classes. Happily tagging along behind doctors, and peering curiously in the ppl's mouth. Realising the new part in me, who's now very much attached to dentistry...

but ..yeah, i would be lying if i said there weren't one day of gloom and misery, the day when i felt so depressed and stressed out in clinics, the tears and frustrations, the day when i wished i could turn back time, and change the history..( ..and then what ? stop studying and 'mengorat' anak raja, married and lived in luxury in big palaces..huhu..as if i could bear living like that...). Heheh, but still, here i am, still paddling the waves, aiming to reach the shore that from day to day, becoming more visible in my mind. InsyaAllah, i will..( im picturing myself ni...with a big grin plastered on my face, wearing my graduation robe...and then, a few years later, me walking on the sidewalk, juggling books and clutching my coat, on my way to lecture hall, furthering my study abroad...) . Pray for me friends !!!! =D. Fighting!!!

so..back to the question, what is the best thing about dentistry ?
..Hmm..seriously, i dunno...

..p/s : do u want to know why out of the blue, im so bersemangat like this..ehhe..just finished my extraction class, as usual, when it is extraction classes, u really feel like a dentist...=0..

nak tanye sket.. actually dah tanye adik sendiri.. dia pon tak leh nak jawab sangat..

Sebab per dental nih diasingkan dari perubatan.. maksud saya, cam bahagian otak, paru-paru, perut, mata, telinga dan anggota2 badan yg lain.. semua bleh belajar under perubatan punye course..tp, utk pergigian plak, dia asing.. pelik jugak.. sebab nak ikut logik, maybe otak, paru2 nih lebih complex dan important compare tu gigi laa... hurmm.. tuh jer.. still tak paham sampai laa nih.. :)

hmm..cant really say much about why it is separated from medical, ..among the probable answers to it..maybe:

1. kalau semua kita serah kat medical student, ..huhu, scared that it might be 'too stressful' to them, ..we are just kind enuff to help lessen the burden..;]

2. and btw..who's going to be the dentist then..hmm..? let's not limit the variety of job opportunities ..haha..

quoting ur words here.." sebab nak ikut logik, maybe otak, paru2 nih lebih complex dan important compare tu gigi laa.."..

hmm..well,...let just picture us smiling without any teeth in our mouth, or grinning wide showing a big hole with black staining at the front teeth, or talking in close proximity to someone with bad breath smell coming from our mouth...then, perhaps we'll realise and appreciate the importance of 'teeth' in us..=]..

and btw, 'dentistry' is not only about teeth, there's more to it..ohh, dont let me start, cos i wont be able to stop..huhu..;]

but, thanks bukhari,=] interesting question there..i hope my answer satisfy ur query..tata! =]
