Good Day. I Would One Day Like To Become A Dentist But I Am Confused. Could I Own My Own Practice If I Specialized In A Particular Subject?

Q.
Good day, Dr Moore. I want to become a dentist, but I am confused. Is general dentistry a speciality among the 9 specialities because I want to one day own my own private practice as a dentist? Could I own my private practice if I specialize in any of the 9 specialities like orthodontics or periodontics? I am good at chemistry and maths but not so much at biology. I know all subjects are important but which are the subjects that are really important for dentistry? If I decide to become a doctor of dental medicine, would I be able to carry out operations like cleaning and others? Thank you in advance for your reply.
A.
Hello and thank you for getting in touch with me. You first need to qualify as a dentist before deciding what branch or type of dentistry you want to practice, once you decide you can take further qualifications to specialise or become general dentist. The more research you do, the more you will find out during your studies. I hope this helps and I wish you all the best in your future. Best wishes, Dr Andrew Moore.
