The contemporary DDS degree opens a variety of career paths. About 90 percent of dentists active today are engaged in private practice. Of those, 70 percent work in solo practices, and the remainder are members of practice groups-an arrangement that, like medical group practice, is becoming increasingly popular. Career opportunities also are available in the armed forces, public health, business, academe and industry.
