Is being a dentist difficult?
The answer is, yes, it is quite tricky to become a dentist,
moreover if you want to be a good one. It is a strongly surgical
and interventional profession, requiring high skills such as
handling rotary dental burs and sharp instruments, such as
scalpels, tweezers, sharp probes, and all that in an oral cavity of
a person that is mostly not sedated ( just anaesthesised ) and
under stress, constantly pushing your instruments away with his
tongue and producing lots of saliva due to the stress he's under,
when 99% of the time you need a dry field to work in. Taking
rational decisions under lots of stress is a must, and one needs a
lot of practice to be able to handle the complexity of cases that
arise in a daily practice. One needs sharp vision, steady hands,
deep knowledge of what he's doing, creativity, and a good physical
condition. Good luck!
