Dentist - General Practitioner Jobs

Diagnose and treat problems in teeth, gums, or other parts of the mouth. Dentists perform both functional and aesthetic procedures, including cavity fillings, bite alignments, and teeth whitenings. In order to properly identify the issue, they use hand-held tools like mirrors and probes as well as X-rays of teeth, gums, and jaws. Other common duties include repairing/removing cracked teeth, writing prescriptions, administering anesthetic before certain procedures, and educating patients on factors that influence dental health, such as flossing and fluoride.

Dentists usually have their own private practice or join a small group, although some have partners or work as associates under other dentists. On average, they work typical business hours. This is, however, highly variable.

Resume Tips for Dentists

It isn’t uncommon for me to work with a dentist who never needed a resume until now or hasn’t updated it in more than 10 years. Many dentists have been recruited for every role in their experience history or have owned/operated a practice for the bulk of their career. If this describes your situation, or if you are an entry-level dentist writing your very first resume, follow these tips to create a strong, interview-winning document.
