I’m taking this Thought Catalog piece by Chelsea Fagan and applying it to my dental career.
- Do I really want this dental career?
Or am I just afraid of not having a concrete plan?
- Is dental school right for me, and is it what I’m really good at?
(These should be recognized as two separate questions.)
- 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.
