Dentist or dental surgeons look after or preserve teeth by filling, crowning and scaling. They extract teeth and design and fill artificial dentures. They undertake to operate surgically on the jaw and some specializein orthodontics ( treatment and improvement of irregular teeth) mainly for children. Preventive dentistry is also gaining a lot of importance nowadays. a dentist in a clinic looks after sick patients whose teeth need urgent attention , and performs jaw operations and complicated extractions. Out patient may require only ordinary dental treatment. A dentist in general practice has the best financial prospects and the greatest independence,. a general practice may involve partnership with colleagues or it may be on one's own. The usual move is to work as an assistant to an established dentist, with a view to becoming partner later on,. Good health, ability to stand for long hours, manual dexterity, a methodical and scientific approach, ability to establish relationships with people of all age groups, ability to calm the nervous patients etc traits will help gain success in this profession.Dental surgeons are employed by state and central governments in hospitals, medical colleges and dispensaries.
