There are almost countless amounts of different types of doctors in the country and literally hundreds of varying specialty areas in which each of them practice and use their doctorate degree. Many times patients, although they should probably know anyway since they have to make appointments to get there, can tell what kind of doctors office they’re in just by the designs on the walls and all over the office. For example, dental office design is usually somewhat drab, although if the dentist was a member of the Greek system in college they may have something from the pi kappa alpha shop. There are always other types of clues to tell what kind of doctor’s office one is in and in the following paragraphs many different variations of doctors will be talked about, along with what exactly they do for their many patients.
One doctor, as talked about in the previous paragraph, is the dentist. For those who aren’t aware, dentists do things with their patients’ teeth. Among the different jobs that dentists do is checking for cavities. Also, dentists are sometimes given the pleasant task of scraping the excess plaque and tartar off of a patient’s mouth. However, with good oral hygiene such as regular brushing and flossing of the teeth, the scraping and cavity filling operations can be avoided which of course saves the patient lots of money in fees.
Another type of doctor, who generally works specifically with kids, is known as a pediatrician. Pediatricians work with kids to make sure that their patients maintain a healthy pattern of growth, are at an appropriate weight, and also protect children with proper inoculations and making suggestions for a healthy life in the future. Also, they provide treatment for common illnesses such as pneumonia, secondary infections from the common cold and allergies children may have, almost exactly like an internist does for an adult.
Lastly, another and increasingly more popular kind of doctor is the plastic surgeon. Plastic surgeons work with people, generally for a very large fee, to improve their appearance. Many different surgeries are offered from the slightly superficial and purely cosmetic such as the “tummy tuck” or breast enhancement to more imperative procedures like helping victims of car crashes or burn victims. Plastic surgery has become such a popular thing that there are many shows about doctors who do plastic surgery, from the horribly overdramatic and fictional Nip Tuck on edgy channel FX to the nonfiction and (of course) less dramatic Dr. 90210 on the E!, a cable network. However, plastic surgery can often times be a risky thing and there are many different high profile and otherwise cases where surgery has gone wrong and caused people to either look worse than before or in some cases, die.
Doctors can have many different functions and specialties despite the fact that most of them get the same degree after undergraduate college. Through this variation in the types of medicine practiced America has developed an excellent healthcare system in which almost any malady can be treated or improved through the work of the doctors.
