So, being a denizen of the dental forums, I am constantly barraged with threads asking "D.D.S or M.D.", and one of the most common cited reason for pursuing medicine is "Prestige." Before you completely freak out, realize that I to some extent understand the motivation behind this idea, but I can't get my brain wrapped completely around it. So my question is, when you made your choice to pursue medicine, was "prestige" a factor? What does the "prestige" factor mean to you?
