    I chose dentistry because of the close interactions with patients
    I hope you get into dental school!

    Hahaha this is something you will need to figure out on your own. I would suggest shadowing some dentists or getting a job at a dental office to get first hand experience. One of the reasons I want to be a dentist is the opportunity to do technical work with my hands while making tangible differences in peoples lives.

    I wanted to pursue dentistry because I wanted to own my own business and be my own boss while working in healthcare.
    I like being able to form close relationships with patients and also like not being on call. I like making people smile so this
    was a great career for me to pursue.

    This thread is 16 years old. The real question is how did you even find this?

    My question is, did the confused freshman ever go into dentistry?? Or did they give up because no one helped them on SDN? Lol

    Their last post indicated becoming a nurse for what it's worth.
