This should be a good first starter to exploring the world of dentistry and considering it as a future career.
A dentist works with their patients to educate on, prevent and treat dental and oral disease, treating dental injuries and correcting dental deformities.
They are the leader of what is known as a dental team often including a dental nurse(s). The dentist must be able to diagnose and treat dental related issues using a variety of equipment manually and electronically. They have strong manual dexterity which allows them to perform procedures. Interpersonal skills are extremely important as they must be able to give advice and support to patients.
Dentists have a strong knowledge of oral and overall human health as issues relating the mouth, gums and teeth can indicate to many different overall health problems and conditions.
