Hello Averion G.

I am really glad you wanted to know more about dentistry. It is one of the fields that are booming nowadays and it has so many branches and fields of its own just like medicine. Moreover, it started incorporating technology and computer software in so many aspects. In my opinion, being a hands-on learner will be of great help to you in dentistry because there is so much that depends on hand skills and the fact that you implement what you are learning practically first on artificial teeth then on patients. This doesn't however substitute the need of studying and having knowledge and a good scientific base in order to apply the correct treatment. The hands-on experience in dentistry is just a part of it but in order to be a distinguished dentist you are required to have the knowledge and the skill. They are both quite essential in establishing good patient rapport and diagnosing then treating the patient well. Being a dentist myself, I have to say that my biggest pleasure was seeing broken hopeless teeth being restored and regaining their function once more. If you have such hand skills and a passion for restoring things and giving them life back, then I would definitely encourage you to read more about the branches of dentistry and watch videos of dentists working to see what it's like to be a dentist and how does it go around in clinics. This is a very nice brief online course to introduce you to dentistry.
