Why Study Dentistry?

Dentistry is a blend of the oral and medical sciences, humanities and art. Dentists, also known as dental surgeons, have the opportunity to pursue a career that offers intellectual and practical challenges, provides a valuable service to society, to earn a respected place in the community as well as to earn a good income. The dental profession provides a stimulating range of career options both in the public and the private sectors. Dentists as healthcare professionals diagnose and treat a range of problems. This demands strong diagnostic, clinical and social skills. They usually work as leaders managing a team that includes dental nurses, hygienists, therapists, receptionists and often others dentists delivering quality oral healthcare to the community. Dentistry therefore requires the highest standards of professional, academic and personal conduct and provides a wide range of rewarding career opportunities.
