Most likely during an interview, you would be asked "why did you choose the field of dentisty." Is honesty the key? or do you try your best to suck up? Honestly.. my main reason is bc of the money. Being a typical asian minority and all... moving to the u.s. was tough and it is still tough ( financial wise ) Dentisty appeals to me not only bc of the money but also the fact that its an area that plays an important role with the dexterity of your hands. I enjoyed drawing... but i dont know if it has much to do with being a dentist. I like the working hours / benefits of becoming a dentist. But mainly.. its the money that got me into it in the first place. If i said something along those lines during an interview... would that be a thumbs down? lol thanks for the help.
