The more I experience going to the dentist, the more I seriously consider becoming a dental hygienist or an orthodontist. Seems like a pretty relaxed job. The terrified patients can't even talk to you because their mouths are being worked on . My tiny hands will finally be of use by easily sliding into the depths of their mouths! The dental assistants on the other hand are quite the chatty bunch though, often trying to break the silence with the more serious hygienist/orthodontist. Lastly, you get to cover your face with a mask for some anonymity. Oh and the salary is quite nice as well.
