I am a pre-med student entering 5th year and will be done within two quarters. Currently, I am preparing for MCAT in septempber but I am in a dillema right now because I'm having second thoughts on if I should really do medicine or change a path to dental school. I was wondering if people in the field can give me honest opinions on pros/cons of each field. I am actually burn out studying so much in college and was wondering if I can withstand the amount of work/study medical school+residency will give (7-8 years) vs dental school (4 years to become general dentist). I know that both school do require hard work emotionally, physically, mentally, but I heard that the average dentist lifestyle is more flexible than the average medical doctor, so i am more leaning toward dentistry. Honest opinions?
