Dentistry is something that I am passionate about. As for the "Why dentistry" question you should probably do some soul searching. Why are you wanting to go into dentistry is it because you have a family member that's a dentist, or could it be because you had a traumatic experience as a child and you want to be sure to make dentistry better for children now a days, or could it because you want to be an MD but don't want the hours of an MD? Whatever the case maybe you should answer the "why" question as truthful as possible in my opinion. As I go around to conferences and meetings I always ask dentist what made them choose dentistry. I have gotten some very interesting answers over the years. I can tell you I chose to because of traumatic childhood experiences. I can relate with apprehensive patients on a level others cannot. With this I have used N2O2 once in the practice I am at. Good Luck with your interview.

I want to be a doctor who has his own practice. Should I major or minor in Buisiness?
There is so much information available on opening a small practice (renting space, buying a retirees client list, etc., etc. ) that you really don't need more than a minor, if that. Business entrepreneurship is so much more involved and it's based more on products, supply and demand, advertising...
