Reasons to Become an Orthodontist
Orthodontists are successful medical practitioners that can have great careers. It’s not easy to become one, but the benefits are outstanding. Other than salary and the ability to run your own practice, there are plenty of cool things orthodontists get to do through their work. This video explains a few of the best reasons people should consider becoming an orthodontist.
The first benefit is that you get to spend time building and maintaining a family outside of work. Other physicians will be scheduled “on-call” shifts, where if someone needs help they have to go in, no matter what time of day. On top of that, the on-call physician still needs to show up to work the next day, even if they were working until 3am.
Orthodontists don’t need to be on-call. You can largely dictate your own hours, especially if you have your own practice. The greater control allows you to build time into your life to start or spend time with your family. Work isn’t the only thing in life, and orthodontia allows you to pursue other areas.
Another benefit of being an orthodontist is the interaction with patients and the relationships you build. If you’re a people person, being an orthodontist is for you! For more information, check out the video above.
