Do you think it is worth going to the Dental School for the amount you’re getting paid?

Hi my name is Jessycka I am in eighth grade and I am a middle schooler wanting to become a Dentis but I don’t know if it’s the right career path for me. I would like to know more about it to see if that’s the choice I would like to make.

Do you think it is worth going to the Dental School for the amount you’re getting paid?

Overtime, is being a dentist worth the time?

Scott’s Answer

Choosing a career path is certainly a formidable task and something you should spend a great deal of time deciding as you mature over time. I would advise at this point to be open minded as to your career path. The health career field is more centered in science, so even through undergraduate college if you are interested in the health field and focus on a science field you don't have to commit to dentistry if you are uncertain. I was a biologic science major in undergrad, but my degree was Bachelor of Arts!!! A well rounded education is imperative and gives you a variety of vocations to explore.
The health career field is focused on achieving certificates and degrees to advance through the careers, unlike the trades, or not attending schooling. Therefore with the financial burdens, it behooves you to be relatively committed to your training and courses of education, I say relatively, because for example if becoming a dentist does not end up being your path, perhaps a dental hygienist, or assistant could certainly be a worthwhile path. Venture out on your own and specialize in cleaning veterinary teeth!! There are no rules that should confine you!!
Being a retired Dentist of 30 years, I can say that becoming a Dentist requires commitment, fortitude, and a strong sense of self. The rewards are immense and well worth the sacrifices made as it is still a solo profession, although corporate greed is infusing into the environment much like the way of medical doctors has up until now. Good Luck on your future endeavors, Dr Scott Herman

Vidhi’s Answer

Dental is a lot tough compared to medicine because its basically art school of medicine. You have to have great interest in medicine and develop great skills to be a good dentist! Dentistry is highly stressful too. But it’s pay is great once youre out of school, with flexible hours.
