Dentists search for the culprits behind pain and disease. They delve into countless mouths to remove tooth decay, fill cavities, and repair fractured teeth. They also perform corrective surgery on gums and supporting bones. And among their less serious but more popular tasks is the whitening and reshaping of teeth to enhance their patients' smiles.
Like other health care professionals, dentists also work to prevent disease. They inspire their patients to do so as well, encouraging healthy diets and good oral hygiene.
Dentists prevent, diagnose, and treat health problems of the mouth. Most dentists are general practitioners, but some specialize in areas such as orthodontics (straightening teeth with braces) and endodontics (providing root canal treatment).
“Dentistry is as much about dealing with the public as it is about dealing with their teeth.” Robin, Dentist

Confident, quick, and steady with your hands. You should also be people oriented -- you'll need to communicate your skills and trustworthiness to patients, who will keep your practice going by returning and referring others. Good business skills are also important, especially in private practice.
Most dentists run their own practices.
