What Skills Should An Oral Surgeon Have

As a professional oral surgeon, you will often work with patients of every age group. Licensure is required before practice. Applicants must successfully graduate from a dental school that is accredited and pass the practical and written exams.


Before you enter dental school, you will require a bachelor’s degree, however, each school has its requirements. Dental schools accept students who have finished certain science courses such as chemistry and biology. There is no particular dental major required.

However, majoring in biology or science may increase one’s chances of acceptance. An individual who wishes to apply to dental school will need to take the DAT or Dental Acceptance Test in their junior year. It is competitive to enter dental school. These tests are in place with other factors including recommendations and grade point average to admit the right students into the program.

Classes including the study of oral disease and health or periodontology, anatomy, radiology, and local anesthesia are covered. Every dental school requires practical practice where students work on patients in a clinical atmosphere while being supervised by a licensed dentist.

Those in high school who are considering a dental career should take courses in anatomy, chemistry, math, and physics.


There are over seven different dental specialties. Each one requires additional training before you can start practicing. Generally, a one or two-year residency program is completed about their specialty. Those practicing general dentistry do not require additional training post-dental school.

However, individuals who wish to teach or conduct research on a full-time basis usually have to spend an extra two to five years attending advanced dental training. Several practicing dentists choose to teach part-time at dental school clinics supervising students.

Licenses, Certifications, And Registrations

Every dentist requires a license. A lot of these organizations prefer oral surgeons who have a degree from an accredited dental school. As well as individuals who pass the practical exam along with the written exam. Furthermore, oral surgeons who intend to practice in one of the over seven specialty areas require a license in that specialty.

Typically, this requires 2 to 4 years of extra schooling. In certain specialties, completing a special state exam is necessary. Post-secondary residency terms may be additionally required which can last up to 2 years.

Required Skills And Qualities 

Communication Skills 

Excellent communication skills are necessary between patients, dental assistants, hygienists, receptionists, and support staff.

Detail Oriented

To make sure that the proper medications and treatment are administered, oral surgeons need to be detail-oriented. They must pay close attention to the teeth and their shape, space, and shade. If they are matching a false tooth alongside the patient’s teeth, color matching is vital.


Oral surgeons need to be adept at working with their hands. They only have limited space to work within.

Leadership Skills 

The majority of dentists have their practice and this means they have to be capable of leading and managing their staff.

Organizational Skills 

Keeping accurate records of every patient and their subsequent treatment is part of being a successful dentist. These skills are crucial in both business and medical environments.


Dentists commonly work for extended periods with patients who require highly specialized attention. Individuals who fear the dentist and young patients may require extra patience.

Physical Stamina 

Dentists ideally should be comfortable performing physical tasks such as being on their feet and bending over patients for extended time frames.
