How studying music prepared me for dental school

“What will you do with a music degree if you’re going to dental school?” “Do dentistry and music even tie together?” These were two of the many questions I would hear every time I told someone I was pursuing an undergraduate degree in music. I studied music because it is one of my passions. However, as I progressed further into the course of study, I realized that music and dentistry may not be so different after all.
