Dentistry is a very profitable, very rewarding career choice for many people. It needs to be right for you though, and you need to know if it will be a good personality match for you, and if it will deliver on your career aspirations.

So how do you know if you want to become a dentist? Begin by considering your own interests. This is a job that will involve working closely with people, and helping them to achieve better health. It will suit someone who is a real people person, and who want to do something that they feel is worthwhile.

However, it is also going to be incredibly hard work, and you will need very good exam results and general intelligence. Much of it is science based, though you will also need to be good with your hands for providing dental treatments like fillings and veneers. There are also other career options in dentistry if you prefer, like dental nurses and hygienists.
