Careers in Dentistry
A dental education opens up a world of professional opportunities. In addition to private practice, today's dental school graduates can choose other dental career options including working in hospital emergency rooms, conducting advanced laboratory research, teaching future dentists or even traveling the world with international health and relief organizations.
If you are looking for a rewarding career in health care with a competitive salary and a sustainable work-life balance, dentistry may be for you. Visit the ADA for more information.
Dental Team Careers
There is a great demand for dental team positions like dental hygienists, dental assistants and dental lab technicians. Hygienists and dental assistants interact closely with patients to ensure a high level of care, while dental lab technicians work behind-the-scenes, designing the dentures, crowns and braces used by dentists.
All dental team careers are well paid with flexible hours. The educational costs are also much lower than dental school. Learn more about accredited training programs in your area.
