Absolutely not! If anything it is rewarding! Like any profession you need to establish, standard operating procedures. There are systems for each procedure and more importantly your create the ambiance. There are not many professions that have instant gratification, and this does. Especially with the current technology of Prostodontics. Over 25 years and still LOVE it! My dental mentor is 84 she is still practicing one day a week and enjoys it too! All The Best!
