Dentists examine, diagnose, and treat diseases, abnormalities, injuries, and dysfunctional disorders of the oral cavity and its associated structures. They are responsible for administering the dental service policy, including establishing and maintaining dental health standards. They are there to examine patients’ oral needs by administering and interpreting radiographs and diagnostic tests to determine type and extent of dental diseases and disabilities or dysfunctions. They evaluate the findings and prescribe the type and extent of treatment for each patient. Additionally, if the diagnosis determines that problem is non-dental, they refer patients to the appropriate medical specialty for treatment. However, Dentists are responsible for restoring the health and function of carious, fractured, or otherwise defective teeth. Their daily routine includes performing routine preventive, periodontal, oral surgery, endodontic, and prosthodontic treatment and even consultation services.
