    Hi guys, since year 10 I've always said that I wanted to become a Dentist because it is a well respected degree but also the working aspect is easier than being a doctor. I think I got this idea because of the whole junior doctor problem going around and I really don't want to study 6 years then work my ass off for another 3-5 years.

    I was speaking to my friends, and they mentioned private doctors and being a surgeon. I know that I shouldn't be doing this for the money and stuff, but I really want to earn 6 figures and the only way I can do that with Dentistry is if I work as a Wholly private dentist which I think is not easy to do, because if it was all dentists would be doing it.

    If I do Medicine I can become a Orthopedic Surgeon, but I don't know much about the profession and the job itself.

    What do you guy think?

    (btw I want to get A*A*A* in bio,chem and maths, but realistically A*AA)
