Do you lack self-confidence in your smile? Do you get embarrassed by: faded, cracked or chipped teeth; crowded or crooked teeth; worn or stained teeth; or uneven spaces between your teeth? Jenkintown Dental Medicine is the General Dentist in Montgomery County that can re-design your smile.

How Does Someone Qualify To Become A Dentist

After graduating from an undergraduate program with a BS or BA degree, prospective dental students must attend an additional four or more years of schooling at one of fifty-six accredited dental schools in the U.S. Dental School graduates then must pass a two-part written national board examination and a written and practical state or regional board examination. After passing these exams, a dentist officially becomes a general dentist and is given a license to practice.
