This is a great time to become a dentist. Technological changes promise to change the face of dentistry. Technology is changing what is possible in dentistry as well as how dentists interact with their patients. We are looking at a future in which the quality of care available will be materially better than in the past. For instance, scientists are working on a way to 'regrow teeth in two weeks! As research on the materials used in dental care progresses, as well as on the techniques employed by dentists, we can expect technological changes there too. It's important for dentists to stay ahead of the pack and understand the available technologies and products in order to be able to offer their patients the very best dental care. There has never been a more exciting time to be a dentist. 

Students interested in dentistry need to know a few things about dentistry and the opportunities it offers. The most important thing we can say is that technology has changed the field. The dentist of the future will need to be computer literate and understand the technologies on offer. A more tech-savvy dentist is the biggest human resource development you can expect. Knowing only dentistry will not be enough to make you a good dentist. The intellectual demands have swelled beyond what goes on inside the patient's mouth. Technology has always been important in dentistry but we are entering the most tech-intensive phase of dentistry's history. 

It's hard to overstate just how much technology has changed dentistry. I'll give you one example: dental implants arte planned and placed in ways that would seem impossible to a dentist two decades ago. Perhaps even a decade ago. Dentists regularly use 3D imaging alongside software guiding techniques, to place dental implants, having decided on the best place to put the implants after taking scans of their patients. 

Dentistry is regularly viewed as one of the most attractive professions. Not only are they intellectually stimulating, they are among the best paid professions in America. Orthodontists, prosthodontists, and other dental care experts, are highly compensated. Another attraction is that dentists have a great work-life balance because they have more control over their work schedules. Finally, it's great to see the results of your work. In an hour or so, a dentist can stand back and see what all his work and study has led up to. It's an immensely gratifying and satisfying feeling. Ask a Saginaw dentist and they'll tell you just how great it feels to be a dentist. 

After graduating from dental school, students can attend a dental residency to develop their skills, speed and effectiveness as dentists. Many dentists decide on a specialization and do a post-grad in that specialization. We have talked about orthodontics, and prosthodontics, and to that we can add endodontics, oral surgery, pediatric dentistry, and periodontics. A fraction of students decide to become dentists with the United States' armed forces as a way of repaying their loans and getting a job. The last group of dentists choose to go straight into dental practice, assuming they have the good fortune to get a job immediately after graduating.
