Becoming A Dentist
Welcome to our new dental students, tomorrow's dentists. A dentist, also known as a dental surgeon, is a surgeon who specializes in dentistry—the diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of diseases and conditions of the oral cavity. Dentistry offers many rewarding career options combining science and technology with helping people enhance and maintain their oral health. On the other hand, dental education is very unique, even among the medical education. The practical and clinical skills are a major essential part of undergraduate dental education.

As you graduate with your first degree in dentistry, you realize that this makes you a fellow professional. With that comes the responsibility of adhering to professional conduct and ethics. On graduation from Bachelor of Dental Surgery one swears by the Hippocratic oath, thus ensuring commitment.
