Be a Dentist

The health of the teeth, jaws and mouth are the concern of dentists. Dentistry is a wide field and many dentists after they basic degree in dentistry would go on further courses /trainng to specialize in a particular aspect. A Dentist is a general practitioner just as there is the GP or general practitioner you consult at a medical clinic. Specialities in the dental field include an Endodontist, an Orthodontist, a Periodontist, an Oral Surgeon or an Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon. If the Dentist thinks that you have a problem that needs a specialist to treat, then she should refer you that specialist for further treatment and not try to do something that she is not equipped to do. As in a medical practice, ethics plays an important role in this profession.
