A Typical Day of A Dental Student | VLOGMAS Feature 1

Hi Guys! For today’s vlogmas I’m gonna be featuring
a felow student from the medical field. I’m gonna be featuring Brittany from Brittany
Goes To Dental School. She’s a second year dental student and she’ll
be showing what a typical day as a dental student looks like. I’m gonna be linking all her social media
information in the description box below so make sure to check it out. And without further ado, here is her typical
day. Hi everyone! My name is Brittany and I’m a second year
dental student and I’m gonna show you what a typical day is like for a dental student. First thing I do is grab some breakfast. Usually I make some eggs but I’m in a rush
right now so I’m gonna grab a banana and also I have a croissant here. So let’s go to school. Alright so, typical day for me is that I have
class from 8-5 and that includes lectures in the morning, and then it usually ends in
the afternoon we have labs. Here’s a quick run through through the first
floor of my school. The second floor is the clinic floor where
patients are seen but I’m a second year so I haven’t met patients yet. Students start meeting patients at their third
year so I have one more year left before I start meeting them. But yeah, I’m going into my first class of
the day. Kind of random fact if you ever wondered why
Dentistry and Medicine are separate it’s because a long long time ago, dentistry started out
as barbers and they pulled out teeth so that’s why they’re historically separate. But yeah, here’s my lab class where everybody
goes and does their labs. I think what makes dentistry stands out from
the other healthcare fields is we really use our hands a lot. For example, here is a project where I had
to an onlay prep then I got to do 3d printing the crown using 3D printing machine. So I made that crown! Yeah! And I’m gonna have to cement it. It was really awesome. Another cool thing is we give patients local
anesthesia before their procedures. And we also make cool things like gold crowns. We start off with wax. Heat up some gold and then we spin it around
and they the gold gets hardened in that mold. And then we put it in some water to cool it
down and then we bust it open and here you go. A dull gold crown. But then after we polish it, it gets so shiny
and beautiful. Another thing that we do is make dentures
which is probably the hardest thing that I’ve done so far just because it’s so intricate. Even though it’s hard I feel like it pays
off so much because you have gone through this journey and you’ve seen the progress
of your work. Hey everyone so I’m back home and I usually
end school around 5pm then I go home and then I relax for a bit because I just can’t study
right after I go home. And then after I do all that stuff I take
a quick nap then I get started with my work. But here is my desk setup. I have two computers here. This one is my MacBook pro. It’s really really old I use it only for editing
because I do make videos every week, which is fun but it’s kinda stressful at times. Then I have my Dell which I use for all my
classwork and it’s touchscreen. So it’s really great. I guess this is turning into a desk tour. Then a huge study tip that I have for all
of you students out there is to really invest in a notebook. I basically live by this. It’s not like anything like a 30 minute intervals
but I write down everything I need to do. I do have finals in a week so it’s really
crunch time right now. I really live by it. Anyways, I feel like the hardest thing in
dental school is, at least for me, is time management. In the first and second year it’s just so
much didactics, so much science courses, so much dental courses and dental labs, it’s
kinda hard to balance all of that. I know in third year and fourth year when
we go off to clinic, it will be much easier because it’s gonna be like half academics,
half clinic but I’m still in my second year so that’s why everything is so busy right
now. Thank you so much to Jamie for letting me
have the opportunity to show you all what it is like to be dental student. I guess the biggest difference is really the
labs and later on the clinic and just balancing that with the school work and if you are interested
in learning more about dental school and what it’s like to be a dental student go check
out my channel! I post every single week and maybe I see you
guys next time! Bye!!!

  12. You are lovely! I'm sure this made Brittany feel so motivated with her studies and also with her youtube channel โค๏ธ

  13. I have a question for you- have you ever felt like a failure during medical school? Do grades really matter, or is it more about passing?

  14. SO cool, Jamie! If you'd ever like me to take your audience through a day in the life of a surgery resident (minus patient-identifiable info of course), let me know!

  15. Such a great idea Jamie!! The allied health occupations would be really cool to feature too – for example speech pathology, (medical and or educational) is surprisingly often misunderstood! #SLP

  16. I will be starting my junior year in my dentistry school here in Costa Rica, Iโ€™ve already went through the academics, and next year will be a little more stressful, we will have clinics from 7am to 4 pm, then seminars and other theorical classes from 5 to 7 or 7 to 9pm. The thing is that I will be depending on my patients (which I have to look for myself) if they donโ€™t come back, I would either have to look for another one (depending on the time) or flunk that clinic. So itโ€™s highly stressful. The protocols, the tons of paperwork, the signatures, the case presentations, itโ€™s too much! Haha

    I love your channel! โค๏ธ

  17. I am a final year dental student…and believe me when I say..it never gets easier โ˜บ๏ธ clinics are way tougher but more interesting..we have to work in clinics even on exam days before going for exams
