Share Article

Dentist is the #1 “best job” for 2013 according to new US News and World Report job rankings. Los Angeles prosthodontist Dr. Anthony Montella of Advanced Prosthodontic Specialists talked to local college-bound students about the rewards of a career in dentistry and prosthodontics.

Last week, top Los Angeles Prosthodontist Dr. Anthony Montella of Advanced Prosthodontic Specialists addressed students at Thousand Oaks High School about the rewards of a career in dentistry and prosthodontics at a time when career prospects in the industry flourish.

This year, the job of dentist came in at #1 on the U.S. News “100 Best Jobs of 2013” annual job ranking, predicting the profession will grow 21.1 percent by 2020. The report assesses occupations based on employment opportunity, good salary, manageable work-life balance, and job security.

Dr. Montella discussed prerequisites for dental school and recommended preparation for high school students interested in a dental career. He also illustrated the importance of dentists in the community and the personal satisfaction clients receive from teeth restoration with before and after photos.

In addition to an overview of dental careers, Montella discussed the nine dental specializations that dentists may choose to specialize in through post-graduate training.

“I chose a career in prosthodontics because I wanted to make a difference in the quality people’s lives,” Montella told students. “The prosthodontist’s unique focus is on the restoration and replacement of teeth and that often involves the use of dental implants, dentures, veneers, crowns and teeth whitening. What we do for our patients has an amazing impact on their day-to-day lives. Studies show a healthy mouth promotes a healthy body.”
