Most Helpful Girl

  • Hmmm well out of those two I think I will choose the doctor because if you think about it; if someone were close by and were brutally hurt then it would better to have a doctor rather than a dentist. Though dental care is very important, a doctor seems to have higher benefits. Yes I know doctors are always busy but I know doctors with successful and loving marriages that are in great condition.


Have an opinion?

  • i don't have to go through all this, one its too much and two the facts don't really matter. a doctor is always going to be on call. a denitist can be more flexible at spending time with his family. so I would probably prefer a dentist, but I myself want to become a dentist. in the end do what makes you happy because you will find someone who is willing to work with you and be flexible with you hours of working.

    does that make sense? I didn't know how to word it I'm kind of out of it because I'm sick :/

  • Doctor. Only for the reason that dentists have a higher suicide rating.

  • All I saw was blah blah blah blah blah blah.. Um I will pick the one who gets song with me lol

  • I'm pretty sure it depends on the type of doctor. they're not all overworked. this is way to over generalized.

  • Doctor. Only

  • Dentist seems a better lifestyle.

    Orthodontist is the nice. I read a while ago that the average u.s. orthodontist worked 30 hours a week for 400k/year.

  • Please tell me you're not basing a decision on which medical proffesion you should pursue on romantic prospects...

    • hahahano way

    • ah good. Regarding the income though... you are aware that doctors don't get that salary for several years, right? Not to mention paying off med school loans.
