2 parts: part 1/2

My second night in solitude... it is at times like these when its good to do some thinking.... A LOT of thinking.... one question came to mind....


hmm... sapa yek??? the most basic question that we rarely ask ourselves... I know I am studying dentistry.... but actually if some 5 year old asks me what a dentist is wouldn't it be nice to be able to explain??? So to this 5 year old.... HERE IS SUMTIN FOR YOUR ASS....haha!

Dentists treat people, not just teeth and mouths. They interact with people of all ages, cultures and personalities. The dentist's typical day is diverse and interesting.

Creativity — Dentists are artists as well as scientists. To brighten one tooth or realign an entire jaw, dentists must have an artist's esthetic sense to help their patients look their best.

Prestige — Dentists provide an essential health care service. They are highly respected within the community.

Dentists are skilled, conscientious, civic-minded individuals who work with community leaders, educators, other health professionals and government officials. They often volunteer services to school health programs and to elderly, handicapped or poor citizens, demonstrating a selflessness that is a hallmark of professionalism.

Flexibility — Dentistry allows you to be your own boss. Dentists can balance their personal and professional lives to meet their individual needs and desires.

Dentistry provides opportunities in a variety of private and public settings including private practice, teaching, research, public health and administration.

Security — The average income of a dentist is in the highest 8% of U.S. family income. The demand for dental care will continue to grow. The increasing number of older adults are keeping their teeth longer, are more aware of the importance of regular dental care and require more dental services. Geriatric dental care and the greatly increased demand for newer services, such as cosmetic dentistry, also will contribute to this growth.

Personal Satisfaction — A career in dentistry is personally fulfilling. Dentists perform an important public service to help people maintain their health and appearance. To serve the present and future oral health needs of their patients, dentists enjoy the challenge of a lifetime of learning. Tomorrow's dentists will be at the cutting edge of high technology, making the practice of dentistry even more exciting and rewarding than it is today.
