Choosing a Dentistry Career
Dentistry comes with several benefits, including the ability to improve a patient’s health, well-being, and appearance. Dental professionals also open their own practices and participate in exciting scientific breakthroughs for healthcare.
People often think of a family dentist when thinking about the dentistry field. However, aspiring professionals have a wide range of careers to consider, including:
- Private Practice Dentistry: Most dentists work in their own practices or partnerships with other dentists.
- Research: This field allows workers to uncover new knowledge and scientific discoveries that affect dental patient care. It requires an advanced degree, and you can work in federal facilities and universities.
- Hospital Dentistry: You’ll work with physicians to treat patients with disabilities and medical conditions in a hospital setting. The job requires a minimum of one year of training in a hospital after dental school.
The list above is not exhaustive. Instead, it shows how deep the dentistry field goes.
Being a Dental Specialist
If you have a specific interest in dentistry, you may want to become a dental specialist. A specialist undergoes similar training to a medical doctor because they will receive additional education after completing their dental schooling. The extra training usually includes two years in specialty courses after four years of formal dental education.
About 20% of today’s practicing dentists are specialists. There are 12 primary dental specialties, including:
- Dental anesthesiology
- Pediatric dentistry
- Orofacial pain
- Dental public health
- Oral and maxillofacial pathology
- Oral and maxillofacial surgery
- Oral and maxillofacial radiology
- Oral medicine
- Orthodontics and dentofacial orthopedics
