I want to become a pedidontist?

I want to become a dentist and I was wondering about some things:

  1. What do you have to be good at in school in order to become one?

  2. How long do you have to study to become one?

  3. What subjects you suggest to take in university?

  4. I'm very good in math. If I don't become a pedidontist, what do suggest me to be?

Thank you! ^.^ ♥

I am also wondering how much do you get paid and what universities should I go to for this job? I'm sorry if this is too much, but thanks again! 🙂 ♪♫

  • The word is PERIODONTIST. When I looked at what you wrote, Pedi~dontist", I wondered what "feet" and "Dental care" had to do with each other.

  • first and foremost i do believe u need to become a DDS (doctor of dental surgery aka regular family dentist) before u can proceed to any sort of specialty, such as pediodontist, or for example endodontist etc... depending where u live, will dictate how long your courses will be (due to laws etc in ur area). i would predict 8 - 10 years of university. i would suggest u study all of the science and math courses available to you... and as for response to question 4.. accountant. but make that a last resort... dentistry is very rewarding, and even tho i am myself only a dental assistant, i wish often i could have/would have taken time to become a full DDS.. and quite possibly specialize in childrens dentistry best of luck to u!

  • Assuming you are in the USA:

    You will need 4 years of undergrad before applying to dental school. Dental school is an additional 4 years. If you go through your pedo rotation and decide you enjoy it, you can apply to pedo residencies and if you get accepted it is another 2 years.

    Average salary for a pedodontist is around $150,000/yr

    You will need to be good at biology and chemistry. In order to apply to dental school you will need at minimum 2 semesters chemistry, 2 semesters biology, 2 semesters organic chemistry, and 2 semesters physics. calculus and biochemistry are also recommended as well as physiology, microbiology and anatomy
