Dentistry is a branch of medicine that relates to the study, diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of diseases of the teeth and mouth. As with all specialised fields of Medicine, Dentistry can be General Practitioners or Specialists. It is generally acknowledged that dentists identify, diagnose, and treat problems associated with the teeth and gums. However, dentist’s also take x-rays which assists them to identify and isolate additional problems that may be lurking just under the surface.
Dentist’s not only give fillings or cavities, they also repair and or replace broken teeth, take molds of a patience’s mouth but they also advise the most efficient and effective method of maintaining your teeth.
There are a number of supporting staff that may and will assist a dentist in his daily routine and these will vary from Office Secretary, dental assistants, dental hygienists, dental technicians, and dental therapists, all designed to ensure that your complete oral hygiene is at a high standard.
The Dentist Salary may vary from Town to Town or City to City and depend upon the degree of specialisation achieved.
