Your profession shouldnt be based off of money. It should be something that you enjoy. Remember you are doing this for the next 30 years of your life. As for which one to choose. Im pretty sure I am going to be choosing dentistry however I am not sure yet. If I choose dentistry, I have my moms boss who is as of right now waiting for me to graduate dental school and sell me the practice dirt cheap (a big practice too). Or I can become doctor in pediatrics. I love working with kids thats why I am not sure however I have always wanted to be a dentist. Plus I still get to work with kids. However I am not sure if I would want to work with kids as a doctor. As of right now I am majored in BioChemistry. Dental school here in america is ALOT more competitive than medical is. Dentists also have a lot harder time in dental school than medical students have in med school. Dental students/ Dentists also have the highest suicide rate of any other profession due to how hard it is. But yes, the pay isalot more.
