    I want to use my DMD/DDS degree:

    To be the sadist I have always wanted to be.

    To eventually work 3 days a week and still make a good enough wage.

    To do what I have always wanted to do, play with clay and other gadgets all day long and get paid while I am at it.

    i don't know about you all, but i'm in dental school not to be a dentist but to bag a resident. that way, in a few more years, he'll be making good money and i can just stay at home and be a housewifey. :love:

    Maybe do a little general dentistry, or perhaps look into specializing...the area of orthodontics becomes more and more appealing each day.

    i've been really interested in "robotic dentistry" ever since somebody brought it up a while ago... i still don't know why robots would need their teeth worked on but i'll bet in the future we'll have WAY more robots than we do now so robot dentistry could be quite lucrative. i wonder if the gov't will cover any of the procedures, or do robots not count as citizens?

    I'll build robots who will work on people's teeth while i sit and watch.
    This utilizes my skills in dentistry, engineering as well as sitting down and watching (also called observation).
