Careers in Dentistry

Thinking about a career in dentistry? You’ve come to the right place. Dental careers combine:

  • Working with people
  • Helping people look and feel better
  • Using scientific knowledge, new materials and techniques like lasers and computer technology

Most dentists practice in the community in solo and small group practices where they enjoy the independence of owning their own business.

Dentistry offers you the chance to find balance between your personal and professional lives because so much of dental care is done on an outpatient basis.

Dentists can create an environment where they love to come to work and their patients love to come and see them.
