The outlook for dental care jobs is very good. Employment opportunities for dentists are expected to grow faster than the average job through 2024. The U.S. Department of Labor says the number of dentist jobs in the country will grow at a rate of 18 percent. As the population continues to grow, there will be an increased demand for general dentists and specialists. In addition, new dentists will be needed to replace a significant number of dentists who will be reaching retirement age in the next decade. The need for more dentists and dental care services is also expected to increase due to the significant number of people that will be reaching the age range of 60–79. Typically, this population requires more dental work.
