Four Ways Your Orthodontic Career Will Change The World
AT FIRST GLANCE the title of this post may seem a little ambitious. We admit that. But we’re passionate about what we do and we hope you feel that each time you visit us. And in some small (yet very significant) ways, team members here really do feel like we change the world.
Did You Know That All Orthodontists Are Dentists First?
We gain a dental degree before going on to specialize in orthodontics. That’s why we’re so passionate about preserving dental health. Here are some of the ways you can have a powerful impact for good through the dental (or orthodontic) profession:
1. You Will Dispel Fears & Stereotypes
Modern orthodontics isn’t your grandparent’s orthodontics. Never before in history has bite correction and alignment been so comfortable, so effective, so life changing and accessible to so many as it is today.
2. You Will Build Trusted, Lifelong Friendships
It’s one of the things we love most. When it comes to connecting broadly and deeply with so many people and with our community—while helping patients stay healthy and confident—few careers provide the rich opportunities orthodontics provides.
3. You Will Restore Confidence For Many You Serve
There are no greater feelings than the ones that come when you see a patient smile who was embarrassed to smile before. Truly life enhancing. You’ll feel like you’re walking on clouds (alongside your patient).
4. You Will Educate For Better Health (and you may save a life)
Our oral health is inextricably linked to our overall well-being. It’s a privilege and serious responsibility to continually educate about important topics such as oral cancer.
Do You Know Someone Considering A Career In Dentistry Or Orthodontics?
If so, please pass this blog post along to them regardless of whether they’re considering becoming a dentist, hygienist, orthodontist, or orthodontic assistant.
And if that person would like to visit with us, please have them give us a call. We’d be happy to visit with them.
