Is a Cosmetic Dentist a Good Profession ???


Cosmetic dentists are general dentists or Prosthodontists that emphasize their care to cosmetic procedures. It is not a recognized specialty (in the U.S.). As far as dentistry as a career has been very rewarding to me. I am a general dentist. As a general dentist I get such a wide variety of cases and patients from children injuring theirs faces/mouths while playing to patients who want to improve their looks. I use everything from lasers, to scalpels as well as the traditional 'drill'. I have treated infections, diagnosed multiple cases of cancer and been able to help patients take control of their oral health. No day is boring, no case is boring...if a dentist tries to stay at the cutting edge, there are always new and better ways of treating patients. I started out similarly to what you are describing- not sure if I wanted to go into medicine or I spent many hours visiting physicians' and dentists' offices. I saw what I liked and have not regretted my decision. Invest some time into the research before you commit. Good luck!!!

Another option could be to call around and see if any Dentist in your area may offer a discount if you were to pay cash, even without the insurance. Sometimes it can be cheaper then if you were to use the insurance. And most people don't to ask for the cash discount and the dentist office isn't...
