Gilly, a pharmacist is a dispenser of drugs.

Not a drug pusher, a chemist.

Hello,
Dentists make more money, but dental school also costs more; probably neglibile after 10 years working, though. Dentists have to memorize both the pictures and the names of stuff. Also, most likely dentists have higher malpractice insurance where most pharmacists probably don't have malpractice insurance at all. I don't know that for sure, so someone correct me if I'm wrong.

Pharmacists are going to be in greater demand in the next 10 years than dentists I suspect due to the current generational movement. I think pharmacy school seems much more interesting than dental school because you learn about how drugs works, and not what pathologies look like and how to treat them.

thanks!!
