this is for my own sake...so anyone with advice let me know How does a person decide on dentistry vs medicine. I've shadowed both and they both seem really great. I've *heard* that the median salary is less for dentists but i REALLY dont care since both seem to make enough for me to be happy. PLus, the hours for an MD really sucks (i want to have time with my family). But beyond time and money, both have an equal amount of space in my *heart* haha. Seriously though, how do you decide if you have a passion for both professions?
