    The slow decay of dentistry

    Long term dentistry is better. But also the McDonald’s worker can work his way up to managerial positions after many years of knowing the ins and outs and possibly earn more. In and out managers earn 160k on average.

    The slow decay of dentistry

    In the long run I think it's worth it too, I'm just saying if we're talking short term (up until mid thirties) you won't exactly be making bank. Especially with a 300k-400k loan, you'd basically be making minimum wage for a number of years, something you could have started doing at 16 yrs old. Just something to consider. As for buying the dental practise, I actually talked to my dentist about this when I thought of pursuing dentistry. You'd be an idiot not to take a few years to associate and build speed/skill under another dentist's supervision. If not, it's lawsuits waiting to happen, not just from your patients, but staff as well LOL

    30k per year is minimum wage exactly, to put it into perspective haha. Technically, you're making minimum wage after debt servicing (and breaking your back in the process)!

    The slow decay of dentistry

    In the long run, you'll make good money, but up until your thirties-mid thirties, almost any other career will make you as much money or more, given the student loan debt and the time commitment. That's not taking into account lost years of work and the potential to invest that money

    every time I come on the forum, I get happier and happier about not pursuing dentistry

    So after taxes, you're living off of ~30k and will do so for the next 7-8 years?

    Mind sharing what your payments are? Are you taking the agressive approach or the laid back minimum payment approach

    How does it feel paying off that 400k student debt from Melbourne with that income
  10. When are the adjustments happening and is it for sure?
  11. Dentists are people. You walk up to them respectfully and use your words. If they decline, you have nothing to lose. find someone else
