Working in a public environment Disadvantages: Having to identify problems to patients and telling them how to fix it Telling patients how to fix or prevent problems and then they don't listenWorking with multiple tools and equipment that you can't get confused
Why This Career? I chose this career because the working hours and conditions fit my standards.

My personality fits the career with communication and being able to talk to different people and hearing different stories on a daily basis.
Preparation: Plan on which college I want to go to so I can pursue this career and participating in an internship at a dental office in my home town to make sure this career is really for me and is it something I want to do in my life as my stable career.
