Hello everyone I'm considering career between dentistry and pharmacy. I posted similar post in pre dent forum because I wanted to get opinions from both forums. I'm currently at 2nd year of college as a business major. I was wondering if I can get some of you experts opinions on whether dentistry is right fit for me. To introduce little bit about myself, I'm a 1.5 generation immigrant, so English is not my first language. I'm definitely not an outgoing person, but not too shy either. I like to have procedures or guidelines when I'm doing something. I like talking with people if they have similar interest with me, and I don't like strangers too much. But, I have been working as a waiter for past 2 year, so I can put up with any rude people. Also, although I'm not an outgoing person, when I'm working I can pretty much talk to anyone from my work experience. I helped my dad to learn the business as well so I have prior knowledge and experience on how to run my own business. The thing that I'm concerning about the pharmacy is not having enough control on what I do with the work. I might be totally wrong on this, so please correct me. Since my dad worked at a hospital, I had a lot of exposure to the medical field as a little kid even before entering the elementary school. Because of my dad, I had many chance of visiting the pharm section of the hospital. Whenever I visited there, I saw pharmacists following the prescriptions to give medicines to people without having too much control on deciding what to do. Is this right??? Again, please correct me if I'm wrong. Also, not having great potential of making big money is another concern. With dentistry, you can open up a private practice and have a chance to make a big bucks. But, it might never happen. But I love the fact that pharmacy provides stable salary and descent working hours. Also, I love learning about different types of drugs and how they work with human body. I'm very interested in health and exercise, so anything related to that I'm totally in love with. Also, I have neck and back problem from the car accident. So, being a pharmacist would put less stress on my neck and back than the dentistry. I thought about going into medicine, but I just can't see myself disecting human body and performing surgery on it. Lastly, I want to ask how would future outlook of pharmacy be? Would it be still stable? or would it be hard to find jobs? Also, many people view pharmacist as a boring job, is it true?
