How to become a Dentist

There are currently 56 dental schools accredited by the American Dental Association. All of these schools require a minimum of two years of college level education in a science related field. Most dental school applicants have a bachelor's degree, though a few are accepted after two or three years of college. These students complete their bachelor's degree while attending dental school. Pre-dental students must take science classes.

Competition for dental school is stiff. Applicants are considered on the basis of their Dental Admissions Test score, grade point average, recommendations, and interviews. Dental school usually lasts four years beginning with classroom instruction and lab work in science. During the last two years, students treat patients under the supervision of licensed dentists. Upon graduation, individuals usually receive a degree of Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) or Doctor of Dental Medicine (DMD). All states require practicing dentists to be licensed.

Dentists will administer anesthetics for many of these procedures and write prescriptions for patients to use at home.

Dentists who are in business for themselves oversee the day to day administrative tasks of running an office. These tasks include bookkeeping, equipment purchases, and hiring and supervising of general office staff and dental hygienists, assistants, and technicians.

What skills or qualities do I need to become a Dentist?

Dentists should have good interpersonal skills for working with patients and colleagues in the office. In addition, dentists must have diagnostic skills including good visual memory with excellent judgment regarding space, size, shape, and color. Those in this field also have good manual dexterity and scientific skills. Successful dentists with their own private practice also have business sense and ...
