It’s that time of year when everyone (including myself) over indulges with sweets.  First Halloween, then we head into Christmas with more treats and then to Valentines Day and then onto Easter.  It is a continual “sweet diet” for the next six months….

Have you thought of becoming a dentist?    With these holidays treats being consumed, dentists stay busy. 

 Have you considered studying Dental School in Australia?  KOM partners with select Dental Schools in Australia that offer undergraduate dentistry programs and graduate-entry dentistry programs.

Here is a great benefit to studying at an Australian Dental School:
The Australian Dental Association and the Commission on Dental Accreditation of Canada signed a reciprocal agreement that recognises graduates of accredited dental programs in Australia and Canada for certification.  Due to the agreement, graduates of accredited Australian programs will have the same certification processes as graduates of accredited Canadian programs.

Here is an answer for one Ontario Dentist who fights Halloween tooth horrors.  Candy-for-cash project:

A dentist in Georgetown, Ont., is fighting off ‘scary’ tooth decay by offering money to trick-or-treaters in exchange for their Halloween candy.

Kids can swap their unopened candy with dentist Corey Grossman, who will trade $1 for every pound of candy received on Nov. 1.  They will also get toothbrushes, dental floss and dental-care packages in exchange for the sweets.

Grossman says there is nothing wrong with indulging in some candy, as long as it’s backed up with proper brushing and flossing.  He says the goal of the candy swap is to promote good oral health in the community and he is looking forward to the response.

“The parents are excited about it. They think it’s a great idea,” Grossman said.

“For the kids the money is a little bit of an inspiration, but they are like ‘do I have to give all my candy?’ They are getting a little bit worried,” he said laughing.

All the candy collected will be given to a local shelter along with a cash donation.

If you are considering becoming a dentist, think of studying at a Dental School in Australia.
