I recently read that one of the top regrets of the dying is that they wished they wouldn't have worked so hard. I don't think they meant that they wished they necessarily achieved less, or worked less intensely, but that they wished they had made more time for family, raising their children, self reflection and giving to others. So, with dental school and dentistry as a career, there is hard work, but don't let it supplant the important things. Make time for the people in your life. Balance between work, faith, family, and fun!
