Experience #2 -Experience Of A Dentist!

Profession: Dentistry

Experience: 6 months

Location:  India


Things one might find interesting or feel “happy” about this profession is : 

1. Smile – we are the smile creators.

2. I personally like to help and heal someone in pain.

3. Dealing with all age groups – dealing with every kind of patient and at the same time interacting and learning from them.

4. Continuous learning and variety of cases. Personally, I love it.


Hardships I feel About dentistry till now :

1.low pay scale especially for freshers

2.less job opportunities

3.student with no healthcare background experiences has a tough time to establish them.

4.over saturated cities with clinics(too much competition)

5.quacks and dental technicians are operating clinics at very very low price

6.dental colleges are not providing proper facilities and practical knowledge to students.Thus students are half-informed/confused for future prospects.



Pros And Cons which I feel about this profession are:  
*It is certainly not the best profession to choose right now in India.
*You should be very hardworking and able to handle stress.
*Medical student should prefer dentistry only if they are financially strong and have parents with established clinics
*good at multi-tasking
*respected in society
*attend conference in various cities



What my personal experience says about this profession :
Overall I am not happy being a dentist. I love working and treating a patient but we are not paid well. Freshers are not supported by seniors.People are not aware of oral hygiene and they prefer what is cheap instead of what is mandatory for them.
