Incase of any queries
The oral cavity is one of the most sensitive places. You will need to be very precise and careful as a Dentist because you definitely do not want to accidentally stab your patient in the mouth, nor do they. Hence, it is very important that your hands do not tremble or shake even if you are under pressure!
High concentration levels
In order to mend small things, like the teeth (duh!), you will need tiny tools and equipment, especially when you are filling your patient’s tooth. In this case, you will need to focus and concentrate so that you do a thorough job in fixing whatever problem your patient is facing. The worse situation for them is having to return to you again because you failed to do your job properly and not to mention that will harm your reputation too.
Being able to properly interact with patients from all ages
You will be getting clients or patients of all ages and it is crucial that you are able to build a relationship with them while earning their trust. There is, indeed, a certain way to interact with a specific age group thus knowing every nook and cranny will be able to help you tremendously.
Before applying to dental school, make sure the programme is recognised by the Malaysian Dentistry Council (MDC). There are certain basic pre-dental education courses (maths and sciences) that must be completed before enrolment in dental school. However, pursuing a degree in Dentistry will take slightly longer than usual degrees since it is almost similar to a Medical degree and you will be required to obtain a license before you can practice Dentistry locally.
Creating your own dental practice means you work hours are the hours you set. Working for hospitals would mean working long and irregular hours.
