Should I pursue dental hygiene?

Asked 1 week ago by Guest (120 points)

The newest posts I saw about dental hygiene and if it's worth it was from 2005 and even earlier. I just wanted to see if you think dental hygiene is worth it. I'm currently attending a 4-year university. My GPA isn't the best. Science GPA is 2.88 and overall is 3.175. I was planning on going to dental school, but I really don't see myself as a dentist in the future. I don't think I have the personality for it, and I just see myself as a hygienist. Also I don't want to be too much in debt. I thought long and hard about it and hygiene seems more like me. I'm just scared my 4-year degree is going to waste since hygiene just needs an AA. I'm also worried about the job market. What do you guys think? Are there other job careers that I should pursue?
