As a dentist, you’ll need to have excellent communication skills to offer a professional service to patients

Dentists prevent and treat problems affecting the mouth and teeth, including dental and oral disease. They also treat injuries and correct dental issues.

The most common role in dentistry is as a general dental practitioner (normal dentist). As a dentist, you would work as a self-employed contractor providing dental care to the public.

Responsibilities

As a dentist, your work will include:

  • educating patients on oral healthcare;
  • examining teeth and diagnosing patients’ dental conditions by using tools such as x-rays;
  • operating technical equipment such as X-ray machines
  • assessing treatment options and agreeing treatment plans with patients;
  • carrying out agreed clinical treatments such as restoring teeth affected by decay and treating gum disease;
  • keeping accurate records of patients’ dental structure (which may need to be used to identify individuals)
  • keeping up-to-date with developments in dentistry
  • maintaining patients’ dental records;
  • keeping up-to-date with developments in dentistry
  • continuing training and specialising

Some practices employ assistants so that dentists can concentrate on clinical work.

Salary

  • All dentists are self-employed contractors in general practices. In the beginning, they will earn € 60,000 to € 120,000 gross per year. Dentists with more experience can earn € 140,000+.

Income figures are intended as a guide only.

Working hours

If you work as a dentist you will be self-employed and can arrange your own working hours, which may include weekend or evening sessions to suit patients.

In general, a dentist works around 40 – 50 hours a week.

What to expect

  • Jobs are available throughout the country, both in urban and rural areas.
  • When treating patients, you will be required to wear a tunic, surgical gloves and safety glasses for protection and to reduce the risk of cross-infection.
  • Like in your current job as dentist, the stress is comparable (when handling patients’ pain and anxiety for example, or because of working within strict time schedules). However, from your experience you know the role is very rewarding when you see patient satisfaction as well as from earnings perspective.

 

Qualifications

You must have an approved degree in dentistry to practice as a dentist and courses take at least five – six years to complete

Skills

You will need to show:

  • manual dexterity and technical dental skills, plus the ability to maintain intense concentration for prolonged periods;
  • the ability to build relationships with patients and colleagues, very important to build up own client database;
  • high level communication and interpersonal skills, for interaction with patients of all ages and backgrounds;
  • an interest in the welfare of others and a sympathetic manner, particularly to deal with patients’ fears;
  • good administrative and managerial abilities to run a dental practice;
  • information technology skills, due to the increasing use of computers for keeping records and accounts, and for digital imaging of radiographs and intra-oral photography.

Work experience

In Belgium, it’s essential to have minimum 3 years of dentistry experience. If this is not the case, the Belgian government will always give a dentist one year of internship

Employers

In a dental practice, you’ll be employed as a self-employed dentist, providing dental services. Dental practices vary in size from single practitioner, part-time surgeries to multiple-site partnerships with several associates.

Corporate practices and regional dental access centers also employ dentists and are becoming more common.

Professional development

After you’ve completed your dentistry degree, and before being able to practice as a dentist in Belgium, you must register with the Belgian Government of Health. To maintain registration throughout your career, you’ll need to follow a professional code of ethics and complete continuing professional development.

Following successful completion of this course, you may enter a practice as a self-employed associate.
