Considering a Career in the Dental Field?
Dentistry offers stimulating career options. In addition to private practice, excellent opportunities exist in teaching and research, and careers with government agencies. You can choose from private practice, academic dentistry, public health dentistry, clinical research, international health care, hospital dentistry, and more.
The majority of the 164,000 practicing dentists today are general practitioners. The remainder, about 20 percent, are dental specialists who limit their practices to one of the nine ADA recognized dental specialties.
