I Don'T Understand Dentists


Duncan

Recommended Posts

I know MANY people in the dental profession but I still don't understand why people go into dentistry. I have obviously asked many of them this question but none of them have given me a satisfactory answer. I understand lawyers, wanting some sense of fair play in the world, justice and mercy. I get teachers, teaching people knowledge and skills. I get doctors, wanting to relieve human suffering unless you're Maj. Frank Burns on TV's MASH. But Dentists? do they have some unmet need to see others with white teeth? I admit I don't have it

They make good money while working decent hours. They also can go into practice after dental school rather than have to complete a residency. Likewise, there are also many other professions requiring advanced training that may appear to be pretty mundane. Dental health also can play into and correlate highly with general health.

I guess, seems money driven or the easy way out for them, but dentistering is hardly an easy thing, especially with me as a client-I kick
