Essential questions about dental career

I’m taking this Thought Catalog piece by Chelsea Fagan and applying it to my dental career.

  1. Do I really want this dental career?
    Or am I just afraid of not having a concrete plan?
  2. Is dental school right for me, and is it what I’m really good at?
    (These should be recognized as two separate questions.)
  3. Am I actually happy with my decision to be a dentist?


It is August 1st. As in, the August I’ll be starting dental school, the August I’ll be moving to Philadelphia, the August that marks the real beginning of my dental career. I answered these questions during the entire application process. Now that I’ve come this far, time to think about them a little bit more- for myself. After all, this adventure is a huge investment.
