Dentistry Ranked #1 in Best Health Care Jobs for 2018

Every year U.S. News & World Report publishes a list of the best jobs in America in a number of categories.  I am happy and proud to report here that for 2018 Dentistry has been ranked #1 in Best Health Care Jobs.  Of course I’m biased, but I could not agree more.  
Dentistry is an exciting profession that rapidly advances and requires constant attention to stay on the leading edge.  It’s also truly great for extroverts like myself as I love helping people and getting to know them.  That, for me, is the best part of my profession.  I won’t lie, it does have some down days, but those are pretty rare for me.  Most days I can’t wait to get to the office and start helping people.
When I graduated in the late 80’s there was a definite saturation in the dental market and schools were actually closing or cutting class sizes.  Now class sizes are again up and new schools are being built.
Here’s one paragraph from the U.S. News website:
The need for professionals to examine our teeth, and fill and – gulp – refill our cavities isn't fading. And because more people want cosmetic treatments like teeth whitening, the demand for dentists is growing. The Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts employment growth of 17.5 percent between 2016 and 2026, with 23,200 new openings. A comfortable salary, low unemployment rate and agreeable work-life balance boost dentist to a top position on our list of Best Jobs.
