Querer question

Hola. Does "quise" imply that the person is now a dentist and that that was always their intention? The lesson is perfect vs simple past, but I see the English and want to use the imperfect. Siempre __________________ ser dentista. I always wanted to be a dentist

Hola Sherry

You'll see the specific nuance of querer using the preterite here in this other very specific lesson where this verb often carries an extra meaning when used in the preterite. 

Have a look here

I hope it helps.

Saludos
