Working with teeth offers some obvious benefits. There are also some not-so-obvious ones. "Being a dentist or an oral surgeon, you get to have a lot more interaction than you would as a doctor," Dalton Weigle says. "You have the same people coming in every six months for a checkup, and every six months you get to see what's going on with their lives." Weigle's father is a dentist, but once Dalton saw how oral surgery made people happier about their appearance he knew that's the direction he wanted to go. The Medical University of South Carolina College of Dental Medicine awaits. "I will say the money's not bad, but it's a field where you get a lot of reward," the Philadelphia native says.
