About this book

In providing a comprehensive overview of the career paths currently open to oral health professionals, this book will serve as an essential reference guide for anyone considering a career in oral health. It covers, for example, clinical career paths in general dentistry (in private practices, community centers, and hospitals) and each of the various specialties, academically related career paths in both teaching and research, and non-traditional paths (community, government, administration, policy making, government research, and oral health organizations). The authors are from various countries and both academic and non-academic backgrounds. They have been selected for their distinction in particular career paths and include in their contributions insights gained from personal experience. This book will be ideal for readers seeking an introductory portrait of the different career paths in oral health, such as students.  It will also be a useful source for those wishing to re-examine the field, e.g., oral health graduates considering their career choices, or to acquaint themselves with contemporary issues and debates.
