Choosing a career is a difficult process. Many students struggle to specialize when they’re getting their bachelor’s degrees. But if you’re almost done with your degree and you haven’t chosen a particular career path, you do have a few options. Some career paths require education beyond a bachelor’s degree, so any general degree will help you on your way to success. One of those career paths is general dentistry.
General dentists have to go to dental school after getting a bachelor’s degree, but once they’re done with dental school and its appropriate internship opportunities, they’re ready to enter the workforce. The video here will help you know if becoming a general dentist is realistic for you.
General dentists earn a great living helping their patients achieve and maintain great oral hygiene. Their healthiest patients simply require them to check over their x-rays and look at their teeth. Patients with greater needs may require cavity fillings or root canals. As long as you’re not squeamish about interacting with the soft tissues of the mouth, you should be able to find success as a general dentist.
