But to get to the stage of working 3 days as a doctor it takes a lot more time and study. Also, plumbers most likely wouldnt be able to work 3 days a week and their work is much more labour intensive compared to dent which can affect lifestyle. Also Dentists get paid more than plumbers i think. How much could a dentist make like 5 years out of uni if he/she worked 3 days a week? cause like tbh i dont really want to work id rather focus on other hobbies like youtube, gaming, sports and friends cause there fun lol. Would working 3 days a week after 5 years of graduating give a good income to have like nice stuff as well? serious question but i feel like the financial and lifestlye can be a big contributor to someones decision to pursie dentistry? what are your thoughts on this?You can work three days a week as a doctor and live comfortably. Heck, you can work three days a week as a plumber and live comfortably.
