is it too late to go to dental school

I’m thinking about going back to school to get my associates degree. I went to college once, not immediately after high school and I dropped out after a semester and a half. I was already living on my own and working to pay the bills was far more important.

Now I’m 24, still living on my own and I just think that it’s never too late. I want to get my associates in applied sciences and then move onto Dental Hygiene. There is just one thing: I feel so intimidated.

I’ve never been great at school. I’ve always been an average student and I’m afraid that I won’t be good enough.
