Career Opportunities

Dentistry is one of the most highly ranked and respected professions. The dental graduate has a wide array of career options ranging from general practice of dentistry to post-doctoral education specialization in one of nine American Dental Association recognized specialties; graduate studies in the basic sciences that lead to additional degrees (M.S., Ph.D.); a career in teaching and research; and postgraduate study that provides graduates with advanced training for the practice of general dentistry. A relatively large portion of dentists are self-employed practice owners.
