If you are thinking of becoming a dental assistant, the American Dental Association maintains some excellent basic information on the career of Dental Assisting as well as other dental careers on their website.
First of all, there is a dental assistant fact sheet which you can download and gives a 1-page broad stroke view of a dental assisting career.
There is also a more comprehensive brochure that is available as well. This too can be downloaded.
The ADA has also produced a video that promotes dental assisting and contains interviews with actual dental assistants so you can see what they have to say about their career. To find the video just go down to the bottom of the webpage.
There are two pages devoted to dental assisting on the ADA website which go over the advantages of a career in dental assisting – the job description, the career advantages, the opportunities and the earning potential as well as the educational requirements. There is also a page with contact information for professional organizations associated with the dental assisting field.
Of course, you can then call the Dental Assistant Training School to make an appointment and find out about our program. We would love to hear from you.
and start on your path to a better career!
