More about Dentistry
Dentistry accreditation policies vary between countries, but are gradually becoming more uniform. Most Dentistry schools require at least 5 years of full-time study, and sometimes up to 4 years of post-graduate study.
Education courses in Dentistry not only train students in basic health sciences and their application to patient mouth care; they also train students in how best to communicate with their patients. In addition, Dentistry education programs may include management skills for dentists who will run their own practice in their future careers.
Students who have graduated from Dentistry schools, whether universities or other types of education institutions, have the option to start working in an established general practice, or begin their own Dentistry practice. Dentists may also specialize in certain sectors of Dentistry such as orthodontics or dental surgery. Another option is entering the fields of teaching or researching Dentistry.
