I'm contemplating a career move and I would be a field rep with a territory of San Diego and 'The Inland Empire' I recently moved to south Orange County from the East Coast this year. I'm very familiar with the area now and for me to get a new job with a different territory is exciting yet confusing/scary. Is it desolate? hot? boring/minimal life in ie? I'm wondering if people could comment on the doctor and dental practice opportunities in the inland empire as far as amounts of them and how people apparently differ in the IE compared to SD and OC. I personally seem to be liking things more in SD than OC where I live now, but I guess so-cal is just completely different for anyone if you're used to east coast living. Any suggestions/comments are much appreciated.

Boring and hot...okay place to raise a family (think suburbia with overcrowded freeways) Cheap housing. Then again it is harder to generalize, since the IE is home to over 3 million people (included the eastern deserts, closer to 2 million for the LA/OC/SD suburbs). Typically suburban in nature with a small, but growing urban core in Riverside and Ontario. There are some nicer older suburbs in the Inland Empire (Redlands, Claremont, Upland/San Antonio Heights, parts of Riverside) and newer develops (Temecula, Moreno Valley, Lake Elsinore, Corona, Rancho Cucamonga). Traffic is bad...really bad.
As far as dentist, there is no real difference in the number of dentist per person out in the IE as in SD or OC.

Hope this helps.

The Weather is very different. Hot in the Summer, cold in the winter. We actually have frost, unlike many other SoCal cities! Not too bad, San Bernardino (SB) is redeveloping and becoming the next major city with its new in international airport and downtown, were getting new high rise buildings. SB is expected to become the next urban core (More like LA, San Fran, San Diego), while Riverside and Ontario are expexted to be another Santa Ana, and Pasadena.

San Diego is better! America's Finest City, America's Finest Weather (after Hawaii IMO) and America's Finest Beaches (after Hawaii and Catalina) should not be compared to the likes of smoggy, boring IE! It is too hot in summer there, too cold in winter. Also has a lot of criminals.
