Some dental schools require personal interviews with candidates to assess attributes such as desire to help people, ability to get along well with others, self-confidence, ability to meet challenges and capacity to work independently.
With so many degree options out there, here are some top reasons why you should study Dentistry:
Dentistry graduates have an immense scope of employment. In this era, it is considered as a respected job where you can even work in government hospitals.
You can earn a handsome salary being a Dentist while a job as wanted as this enables you to work anywhere in the world as there is a good demand in this field.
After studying dentistry and gathering valuable experience, you can open up your own private clinic and be your own boss.

Important Note: Studying a course in Dentistry will take slightly longer than a degree in other courses as this is similar to a degree in Medicine. You will have to obtain a license to practice dentistry in Malaysia.
It is not necessary to be a specialist but doing so would mean a huge increase in salary and better job demand. You can opt to work straight after degree as well.
Dentistry is as taxing as medicine is. Late nights will be common, and so will early morning. Coffee and notes will become your new best friends as you need to work hard to get through med school and then, your practice.
You know exactly what you’ll be doing at any point in a day because you have it all mapped out systematically. In medicine, you’ll have to manage to eke out any little sleep you can get, study, attend long lectures, complete assignments and cut up cadavers, sometimes all at the same time. So you better be good with managing your time.
Dentistry is another profession that truly needs you to care for people, namely your patients. You need to know how to sympathize with the pain they go through while treating it. As the saying goes, ‘Treat the patient not the disease’.
While this may seem obvious, dentistry requires a love for scientific subjects. Biology, chemistry and physics are all hugely important as you will learn it in much more detail the further into your programme you go.
