I know the first two years of D-school are pretty grueling and I shouldn't expect to work during that time, and 3rd and 4th year are a little less time consuming. So, does anyone work during d-school. If so, what kind of jobs do you recommend? How many hours are good? Also, I heard that some states allow 3rd year dental students to work as hygienists. Do the students need to be certified first? Also, can you work as a hygienist during the week or mainly on Saturday? Lastly, which states allow this? I'm the type of person who likes to have money in their pockets and a workaholic so I'll probably work during the last two years. Thanks for info.
