Dental health is an essential part of the overall health system. With modern lifestyle, dental problems are becoming common among all sections of the society. Additionally improper dental care also creates problems like early tooth falling, tooth decay , enamel loss etc. All these problems require proper suggestions of dentist to keep teeth healthy and fit for a long time. Being a branch of medical science, dentistry deals with maintaining good oral hygiene and a better set of teeth. As the concepts of oral hygiene and other health implications are catching up, this branch is coming of the age. So dentists these days are assuming very important roles in the whole health care system. Dentists help in preventing and treating diseases related to the oral cavity, including the floor of the oral cavity, the roof of the mouth, teeth , gums, tongue etc. He can actually fashion or craft our teeth in such a way that we can get that dimpled or gummy smile. Surgical, medical and other forms of treatment too are a part of dentistry as they are with other medical branches. Dentistry also includes cosmetology, in which corrective treatment is done i.e. stained , cracked or broken teeth can be restored to their original form.

To be a good dentist one needs to have basic compassion for people, manual dexterity, a methodical and scientific approach, a scientific temper , ability to stand for long hours, long concentration span, an excellent memory , ability to infuse confidence in nervous patients especially children , ability to establish easy relationships quickly with people of all age, organizing ability , accuracy and an artist's aesthetic vision, The work of dentist involves treating oral disorders, scaling, cleaning and fluoride therapy, repairing teeth damaged by decay or trauma and rebuild tooth structures for functional or cosmetic reasons and help in providing crown and bridges, designing dentures and doing artificial replacements where necessary.
