On January 13, U.S. News released its list of the 25 best jobs of 2015. What was the job at the top of the list? Dentist!
According to U.S. News, “picking a job is personal, and there isn’t one ‘best job’ that would suit everyone. Still, our list of 100 outstanding occupations exemplifies what makes working worthwhile: good pay, manageable work-life balance and good job prospects.”
Of course, all of us here at MDPM Consulting were thrilled to see dentist — the chosen profession of the vast majority of our valued clients — top the charts. The articles (there’s a list of the 25 best jobs and a list of the 100 best jobs) make a few great points about being a dentist, including the following:
- The best dentists effortlessly balance patient care with turning a profit.
- The best dentists endure rigorous technical and practical training in a competitive dental program.
- The best dentists are concerned with their patients’ overall health (including diabetes, oral cancer, and heart disease), not just their teeth.
The Bureau of Labor Statistics expects 23,300 new dentist jobs through the year 2022.
That’s all well and good, but you might be wondering why we’re taking the time to feature this news here on MDPM Consulting’s blog.
