How would everyone answer this interview question: How do you see yourself in 10-20 years? (or, What do you see yourself doing in 10-20 years?) I'd like to say that in about 10 years, I'd have my own practice already (that is, if I just do general). But, I want to be realistic as well. How long after dental school does it take to build your own practice? I understand that a lot of dental students (after they graduate) work as an associate in a dental office. HOw long after that do you think it takes to build your own practice? And if one specialized......how long does that usually take (for periodontics, since that's something I'm thinking about going into.... ) to build your own practice? Thoughts and feedback very much appreciated!!! (And I'm sure everyone else would agree as well). Thanks!
