Is it hard to get into the healthcare field in the Air Force?

I'm going to meet with a recruiter tomorrow, and what I really want is to be a General Dentist but basically as long as I'm in the healthcare field I'll be happy. I'm 17, turning 18 soon and I have a few college credits. :p sorry DERP moment there! Sandra thanks, I love you.
