Why consider a career in dentistry?

  • Hands on 

Dentistry provides terrific opportunities to apply knowledge of techniques in the clinical setting and deliver various forms of non-invasive and invasive treatment on a daily basis.

  • Challenging

Dentists must draw upon a broad range of knowledge, including human anatomy and physiology; extensive understanding of the application of dental procedures and good patient management to provide effective treatment for patients of all ages.

  • Varied career pathways

There are plenty of pathways available to you in dental practice. You might consider one of the dental specialties, such as oral surgery or orthodontics, working for the armed forces or perhaps pursue a desire to work with children or disabled people in the salaried dental services. Each field presents a host of new and rewarding challenges.

  • Continued Professional Development

Dentistry is a dynamic and evolving profession; thus, it is required that dentists update and develop their professional knowledge and skills throughout their working life.

  • Working with people 

Dentistry provides fantastic opportunities to build relationships with patients and co-workers alike.

  • Autonomy 

As a dentist you will not be subjected to some of the interferences that other professionals have to deal with at the start of their careers, you have freedom to make decisions within the context of a supportive professional environment. Not only this, but as a dentist you have the opportunity to make a business out of your profession.

  • Job security

Dentistry yields up to 98% employment rates for university leavers.

  • Lucrative

Dentistry can earn you a comfortable living, but it is hard work, both at university and in practice.

All life demands struggle. Those who have everything given to them become lazy, selfish and insensitive to the real values in life. The very striving and hard work that we so constantly try to avoid is the major building block in the person we are today.
— Giovanni Battista Enrico Antonio Maria Montini
