Confessions of a desperate doctor and dentist
With a slight nod to the "Confessions" films of the 1970s this is a new book by Ray Lowry, qualified dentist and doctor, author, comedy script writer and after dinner speaker.
Predominantly autobiographical but mostly without using real names, this book covers two distinct parts of Lowry's professional life.
Firstly he talks about his experiences as a dental student at Birmingham University – which covers some technical detail so could be useful for pre-dental school students
Secondly he covers, more anecdotally, his experience in medicine.
