Study of dental medicine is very demanding. Despite the fact that it is hard to find an appropriate employment for young dentists, the interest for the study is still very big. This research aims to get insight why high school graduates choose this study and what they expect from the study and dental profession. 63 students of the 1st semester of the dental study at the School of Dental Medicine University of Zagreb filled a voluntary, anonymous questionnaire. For more than 30% of students study of dental medicine was the first choice and about 17% of students enrolled this study because they expect that they can find an appropriate job easy and very soon after the end of the study. On the third place, students highlight the possibility of having normal family life as doctors of dental medicine. More than 38% of students expect to work in their own private dental practice. For successful study and professional work students highlight the importance of clinical exercises with patients, quality of lectures, motivated teachers and contemporary literature on Croatian language. This research gives interesting clues what dental students expect from their study and profession. Obtained data can be used for the further improvement of the dental study curriculum and teaching process.
