What dentists do

The mouth is the mirror to the rest of the body. Dentists lead teams to provide preventive and restorative care to keep people healthy, alleviate pain and treat patients’ oral health needs. They are at the forefront of research and developments in a wide range of innovative procedures to enhance dental and overall well-being. Dentists are instrumental in the early detection of oral cancers and systemic conditions that manifest in the mouth and that can affect the overall health of patients.   

Dentistry is not a one size fits all career. One of the most attractive features of dentistry is that students can find a career within the field that suits them. Encourage your students to spend time researching the nine dental specialties.
