Dentist Resume

The main duty of a dentist is to take care of the patient's gums and teeth, to treat mouth or gum diseases and infections, to perform various dental procedures, to use dental equipments. There are eight types of specializations for dentists: endodontist, pedodontist (dentist for younger kids), orthodontist (braces), prosthodontist (for artificial teeth), periodontist (for gum problems), oral pathologist (for mouth diseases) or oral surgeon (mouth and jaw interventions). The work elements of a dentist depend on the specialization. But, in general, the main duties refer to examining teeth and mouth, diagnosing and treating dental problems, using dental equipments or other dental instruments, informing patients about dental care, writing prescriptions for medications or creating dental health programs.


When you write a Dentist Resume the first thing that you have to add are the contact information, a short introduction, the summary and the objective statement. The summary has to be brief and to have four or five statements emphasizing the skills and education. After you add these sections, your next section should focus on your skill sets as a dentist. This should be a bullet pointed section with your most important and valuable skills as a dentist. In the next section of your resume, you should highlight your work experience. Add your duties and responsibilities on every position so that the employer can see how you helped your patients. The next section of your Dentist Resume has to highlight your qualifications. Add your degrees, courses and other certificates that are relevant for a Dentist position. Remember to add just the highest ones and to add the name of the degree, the name of the school you attended and the location of the school.
