Dentist

  1. 1. By: Brad Boss
  2. 2. Introduction to Dentist  To be able to be a dentist you have to be able to work good with patients and care about the wellbeing of others.
  3. 3. Nature of Work  Dentists perform regular check-ups, diagnose and treat dental problems, and maintain and improve the appearance of patients’ teeth.
  4. 4. Working Conditions  Most dentists are solo practitioners, meaning that they own their own businesses and work alone or with a small staff. Some dentists have partners, and a few work for other dentists as associate dentists.  Most dentists work 4 or 5 days a week. Some work evenings and weekends to meet their patients’ needs. The number of hours worked varies greatly among dentists. Most full-time dentists work between 35 and 40 hours a week. However, others, especially those who are trying to establish a new practice, work more. Also, experienced dentists often work fewer hours. It is common for dentists to continue in part- time practice well beyond the usual retirement age.
  5. 5. Training and Qualifications  To become a dentist, you need to attend dental school. Applicants to dental school must first complete either a bachelor’s degree or at least 2 years of college-level pre- dental courses. Most applicants have a bachelor’s degree.  To finally become a dentist, you must graduate from an accredited dental school. Depending on the school you attend, you may graduate with either a Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) degree or a Doctor of Dental Medicine (DMD) degree. Dental school usually takes 4 years to complete.
  6. 6. Job Outlook/Employment  You can either start your own dental business or find a practice that has a job opening. To start off you might have to start as a dental assistant until you’re an actual dentist.
  7. 7. Salary and Earnings  Earnings for dentists can range from around $70,000 to upwards of $200,000 a year. Factors affecting income include the location of the practice, the experience of the dentist, and whether or not the dentist is self- employed.
  8. 8. Technology Some technology used as a dentist are computers, xrays, telephones, and other scanners of the teeth.
  9. 9. Summary  Yeah I think this career is still appealing to me but I obviously don’t know my future and don’t know if it will still be appealing to me when I am in college. Its appealing because I like to Interact with other people and enjoy meeting new people and helping them out. My personality type does match with this job because I am an Artisan which means you like to interact with other people and be around people and that’s what you do as a dentist.
