Is dentistry right for you?
Do you like working
with your hands, helping people, being creative and being a leader? Well, then
you might make a great dentist!
While a career in
dentistry may sound appealing to you, it is important that you are genuinely passionate
about oral health—dental school and careers in dentistry are both very
demanding, so it takes determined people to achieve success in pursuing their dreams. The best dentists saw dentistry as their true calling and
are constantly working to improve themselves and their abilities.
If you are interested
in a career in dentistry, make sure to do some soul searching before
plunging head first into the application process. Another great way to figure out if dentistry is right for you is to shadow a dentist or
specialist. The experience will allow you to actually envision yourself doing what he or she does every day. If after this process this sounds appealing, then dentistry is probably the
right fit for you!
