From Women in Dentistry DVD:

“Well, I’ve always been really interested in the medical field, so that was really my goal, to do something there. . . . I think the major thing that I like about being a small business owner is that I just like the control and the power behind it.”
     --
Orthodontist

You need to be good with your hands. . . . Some kind of art background, believe it or not, is good.  You also need to be strong in your sciences: biology classes, chemistry. . . . Dentistry’s a great profession.  I work three days a week and I can still be home a couple days with my son.  It’s really good.  You spend a lot of time getting there; but once you’ve got your degree and you’re practicing, it’s really pretty nice.”
     --
Endodontist

“I think one of the biggest satisfactions is when you help someone and they really appreciate what you’ve done for them.”
     --
Periodontist

“Dentistry is a very good field.  I really enjoy it.  There are several advantages of being a woman in dentistry.  Your hands are smaller and patients appreciate that.  You have a gentle touch.”
     --Dentist
