Gregory’s Answer

Big difference! LOL! In high school I wanted to be an Architect and took the preliminary courses, I also liked to build electrical kits and when I chose I picked electrical engineering. If you like puzzles and solving problems engineering is a good place to be, Dentistry is also great and is a service related occupation. If your looking for a occupation that is a direct service to people that is another great choice. Dentistry tends to be more of a self employment career , either as a sole practice of with a group.

Rahma,

The best career is the one that has you spending most of your time doing stuff that you love doing. It's even better if it pays well, but a well paying job that you hate is a trap that too many people find themselves caught in. You will enjoy life much more if you do something you enjoy so well that you can make good money from doing that.

Both dentistry and computer engineering require you to solve problems, but they are very different problems. You should spend some time thinking about the types of problems you like to solve and which career has problems closer to those you enjoy.

You could ask yourself some questions:-
* do you enjoy modeling and working with your hands? This would suggest that dentistry may be a good choice
* do you enjoy thinking about abstract problems (these are problems that are hard to describe)? Computer engineering may be a better fit
* Are you good with math? Computer programming was traditionally about a set of rules that needed to be followed, but with the introduction of concepts like big data and artificial intelligence, math skills is becoming a more important facet
* Do you like working with people, or do you prefer to work on your own, only occasionally interacting with others. Dentistry as a career demands much more social skills than computer engineering, and while you could fake those skills, it's much more enjoyable to find a career that doesn't require you to fake anything
