Every year multiple magazines and publications put out a list of which jobs have the highest job satisfaction, and every year people complain and don’t believe them. In the era of fake news and distrust in public institutions it’s not hard to believe that people don’t trust these lists, but the reality of them all is that these magazines and publications do a great deal of homework to create them. They survey huge numbers of people in each profession and conduct countless interviews to compile the lists, so it’s fair to say that these lists are pretty accurate. Moreover, a lot of the lists end up having the same handful of professions at the top year after year. It would be one thing to argue with a list in a particular year, but to argue with lists that repeatedly show some jobs as having higher job satisfaction than others would be ludicrous.
One of the jobs that consistently ranks near the top every single year are dentists. This also happens to be one of the jobs that people argue the most with in terms of where it is on the list. Since most people hate going to the dentist themselves they find it hard to believe that dentists truly love their jobs so much. However, when a certain job is in the top two or three positions year after year it’s safe to assume that there must be something to it.
Why do dentists love their job so much? For starters, most of them have incredibly great hours. There are many dentists out there who do so well for themselves that they only have to put in about eight hours per day four days per week. In fact, some of them are only open for three days a week. That’s a great schedule, and they’re able to do this because the profession is quite lucrative. Dentists have a high degree of skill and training since they have to go to school for so many years, and because they do a job that not very many people can do they get rewarded for it handsomely. Thus, one of the key reasons why dentists have such great job satisfaction is because they make a good salary without having to work crazy hours.
Of course, that’s not all their is to it. The other great thing about a dentist is that they have a high degree of technical training that far surpasses what they’re asked to do everyday. In fact, most dentists find their jobs to be incredibly easy because they are so well trained. On top of that they don’t have to deal with any of the stress that their counterparts, doctors, do. They don’t have to worry about making life and death decisions on a daily basis, which means they get rewarded well for their work without having the anxiety and stress that comes with it. It’s no wonder that the dentists at clinics like Riverfront Dental Designs are so happy and positive all of the time.
