Dentists are specialized physicians who take care of the mouth, teeth, and gums. It’s a great job with a lot of benefits, but not everyone is made to be a dentist. There are certain things that are not fun. This video explains some of the worst parts about being a dentist.
Dentists need to work face-to-face with patients every day. Not all of these patients are going to treat the dentist the same. Some may be polite and courteous, others may be funny, and still others may be downright rude. A dentist needs to keep a level head and be a courteous professional for every one of his or her patients, no matter their attitude.
Some patients will have physical limitations that make it more difficult to do work effectively. Some people simply have small mouths or jaw problems that make it difficult for them to open their mouths wide enough for the dentist to do work. Other people have back problems and will need to take breaks from laying down. The dentist needs to be able to accommodate all of their patients.
