Why am I interested in being a Dentist?

Since I was little I always dreamed about being a Doctor. However, becoming a doctor is not easy because I have to go trough a lot of processes to become one. One day I changed my mind about being a doctor because it is very expensive and one day I also went to a Dentist and I remember that in an appointment of 30 mins I ended up paying $150 and they did not even give me any medication. That is how I decided I would be dentist. Besides that I would actually try to help children in my hometown because I came from a really poor hometown and whenever I become a Dentist I would like to help little kids and adults either with money or medicine for them to live a little better than now.
