Are new dentists these days still at high risk of developing back pain? Is being a dentist a suitable career for someone who gets back pain when lifting heavy things/sitting in awkward positions?

You are more likely to be standing in awkward positions, judging by my dentist who has spent over forty years doing so.

Yes, dentists are recognised as being at high risk of back and neck pain:
