Dear Friend,

Thank you for reaching Mera Career guide.com

Below are my inputs about dentists Vs Doctors

Dentist

  • Dentists and Doctors have your health covered head to toe but they promote wellness in different ways.
  • While Dentists focus on oral health, Doctors treat illness and injury in Physiological systems. Their area of focus isn;t the only difference.
  • Doctorsfollow separate educational paths and Dentist have fewer specialty options than doctors. What both share though is a bright job outlook and above average pay

    Duties

  • Dentists and doctors have different responsibilties.
  • Dentists fills cavities, Straighten teeth, Repair broken teeth and remove dead or diseased teeth. Cosmetic issues are a big part of dentistry.
  • Patients see dentists for Aesthetic improvements to the teeth such as whitening and veneers.
  • Doctors address broader Physiological systems. They Diagnose and treat acute and Chronic conditions ranging from injuries to asthma to cancer.
  • Dentists and Doctors share one key Responsibility: PREVENTION
  • Dentists eductate patients about diet, Flossing and Proper brushing.
  • Doctors counsel patients on nutrition, hygeine, excercise and wellness

Doctoral Training:

  • Doctoral training in medicine and Dentistry four years to finish. med students spend the first two years in the classroon, studying anatomy, biochemistry, Pharamacology and Medical law and Ethics. The second half of their training happens in Hospitals and Clinics through supervised roations in ares such as internal medicine and Pediatrics.
  • Dental Students learn basic and behaioural sceinces in their first two years and move on to advanced science and classess in clinical and practical management in their third and fourth years. Dental students typically must complete one rotation in basic oral care practices.

After completing professional school, dentists and Doctors must pass an exam and obtain a state license.

Specialties

  • Dentists can shoose from nine areas of specialty including public health, Oral and maxillo facial surgery, orthodontics and Pediatric dentistry.
  • Doctors can pursue board certifications to specialise in dozens of practice areas, ranging from Obsetrics or psychaitry to cardiovascular surgery or gastroenterology. Specializing in either profession requires years of training beyond doctoral education. Some oral surgery programs can take up to six years of training beyond doctoral education and gynaecology.

Hope this is helpful to have a few understanding about the difference
