Getting a Job as a dentist in USA- 11

“What is success? I think it is a mixture of having a flair for the thing that you are doing; knowing that it is not enough, that you have got to have hard work and a certain sense of purpose.”-Margaret Thatcher

  • Once all this drama is finished, getting a job is still quite a hurdle. I suggest as you prepare for your this journey keep in mind that - contacts is the best thing you need. So start going for any hands-on CPD courses, go and meet consultants in different departments in the local hospital (mostly OMFS/Restorative Dentistry) / teaching institutions.

  • Go to all the local area study groups - meet dentist / DCP in the area - as dentistry is a small world and most people knows each other.

  • Another trick that always works is going to see the different dentist in your local area and ask them if you can observe them practice dentistry. This is also the best exam preparation, all the theory becomes practical knowledge. Also improving your patient management skill and staff interaction is very crucial for a successful career.

  • Preparing for your interview is also something you should give adequate importance to as good jobs are hard to get and if you really want a job you should stand above the rest. You need to be prepared for the common questions and practising your communications skill is crucial in dentistry interviews.

  • If you can take a portfolio of the different cases you have done, be it even under-graduate level fillings/crowns and dentures, it shows your commitment and passion and would be viewed very positively by an interview panel.

  • I shall list some of the common websites and recruitment agents below used by US dentistry.
