Dentistry as a Career

Is Dentistry For You?

In evaluating whether dentistry is a suitable career for you, consider the following:

  1. Do you have adequate native manual dexterity?
  2. Do your teachers and faculty advisor feel that dentistry is a desirable career for you, and do you have the support of your family?
  3. After speaking with and observing one or more dentists at work, do you find their profession attractive?
  4. After visiting a dental school and/or clinic and speaking with administrators, faculty, and students, are you still strongly in favor of pursuing a dental career?
