Probably 100% of Dentists would probably retire if they had the ability to do so.

Not mine. He's told me so. He only works 4 days a week anyway. He has a great office - they all get along and take cruises together. A couple of times a year he declares a few "snow days" because the weather is so nice. They reschedule everyone and take off for the bay or something. He's happy with what he's doing. He decided to become a dentist when he discovered the Navy wasn't what he wanted to do. He hadn't graduated high school at that point, so I don't think the Navy gave him fun jobs. So some people enjoy their work, and dentistry is a way to help others.

arrete - I'm happy I'm retired, though.
