A Different Kind of Dentist

We know that going to the dentist is not a favorite activity for people which is why a new campaign from Aspen Dental caught our attention.

The dentist in their commercials take advantage of unusual opportunities to explain how their practice is different.You have to give them credit for using humor and creativity to talk about an appointment everyone needs to make regularly.

So this is a good time to remind you – when’s the last time you saw your Summerville dentist? Is it time for your next check-up?

Interested in a dental career?

Admission is competitive and DDS/DMD programs generally take four years with additional years for specialties. There is also a demand for hygienists, assistants, and lab technicians.

Do your homework before starting a program, considering your budget and time for the length of a program. If you are looking for a rewarding career, it’s definitely one that we can recommend!
