What skills do you need for a course in Dentistry?


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.

Good time management

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’.

Love for Science

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.
