1. What profession did you choose? Why?

Hey Emily,

I'm not an orthodontist but I'd love to help with your project!

1. What profession did you choose? Why?
I found a similar question that asked what people like about their job as an orthodontist (https://www.careervillage.org/questions/682163/name-what-you-love-about-this-career-and-what-you-dislike-about-it-if-any) which might help.

2. How many years of college did you go through?
It looks like it takes around 8-11 years. This consists of four years of undergrad, four years of dental school, and around three years for a specialty, such as orthodontics.

3. What jobs did you work on before you landed your present professional job?
Because it takes so long to become an orthodontist, most people's first job is in dentistry. Often times, students will work other jobs (retail, tutoring, service jobs, etc) to help pay for schooling and other education costs
