Dentistry is a demanding and hugely rewarding field in healthcare. Dentists diagnose and treat problems affecting the mouth and teeth. They work to prevent oral disease, promote oral health and restore tooth function. From fillings and cosmetic crowns to saving or replacing teeth after traumatic injury, life as a dentist combines the intellectual challenge of diagnostics and the technical challenges of surgery.
