hi i think both pharmacy and dentistry are good fields to go into, being a pharmacist is probably less demanding than a dentist, though it depends on what kind of dentist as there are different types like an orthodontist but i have a biology teacher who has a degree in dentistry and he was a dentist then he got bored so became a biology teacher, i guess it might be horrible looking into people's mouths all day, then again it depends on what you would most enjoy!!!

Hmmm im not so sure about dentists but i know a lot about a pharmacist because i work in a pharmacy!! Now pharmacists can be permanent or can be what we call a locum. Locums are pharmacists who don't have a permanent job meaning they are always moving around the country to other pharmacies!!

Also pharmacist job is getting quite competitive because to do the university course is way easier than doing dentistry so there are less jobs available for pharmacists now!!

Well off the top if my head thats what i know so far

hope i helped !!

I'm stuck in exactly the same situation, though I'm a little bit more keen on Pharmacy! As I am really eager to get a PHD in it!
