Dentistry has many challenging roles like :-
Orthodontics- deals with straightening and aligningteeth and jaws.
Periodontics- specialize in the care of gums and the diseases that might affect them.
Operative Dentistry- for root canal jobs, filling and cosmetic surgery.
Prosthodontics- involves the making of artificial teeth,


Oral surgery- deals specifically with operation on the mouth and jaw.
Oral pathology- provides the diagnosis for diseases that affect the mouth.

They can find such opportunities in government or private hospitals, defense services, nursing homes, poly clinics,research and health centers, medical colleges etc. They can also start with their own practicewhile being visiting specialists at various hospitals or visiting faculty at medical colleges.

To excel in this profession one must have an artistic sense besides technical knowledge. It is a profession that requires craftsmanship and skill as much as theoretical knowledge. The foremost attribute required for a good dentist is patience, stamina to work hard for long periods, good health, power of concentration, manual dexterity and accuracy. Besides these they must have a keen eye for deatil, ability to memorize and recall scientific facts, comprehensive medical understanding , cool temperament and strong interpersonal skills.
