Before we begin with the whole process of
getting into dental
school, let me give you some advice:
Nothing in the world can take
the place of persistence.
Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent.
Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb.
Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts.
PERSISTENCE and DETERMINATION
alone are omnipotent.
