Take your people skills and join a growing industry as a dental assistant - you’ll learn training requirements, patient care, on-the-job skills and so much more!
Let’s face it: few people enjoy going to the dentist. Even if you really like your dentist, and even if you have maintained good oral hygiene your entire life, that visit probably isn’t something you look forward to. Particularly if you have reason to believe you might need more than just a simple cleaning.
Dentists know this, and for that reason, they tend to hire people who are committed to making those visits as pleasant as possible. Hygienists who are warm and bubbly, and assistants who know how to put patients at ease.
If you’ve ever thought about becoming one of those dental assistants, it’s probably because you enjoy working with people and you like the atmosphere at your own dentist’s office. Maybe you have aspirations of becoming a dentist yourself one day, and working as an assistant seems like a great way to become better acquainted with the industry and all that job entails. Or perhaps you’re looking for a job with flexibility and a positive career outlook.
Whatever the reasons for your interest in this career path, there is a lot you have to prepare for before taking your place next to that dental exam chair.
The modules have been created to help you better understand both how to enter the field, and what will be expected of you once you do. We’ll walk you through education and training requirements, and then guide you in on-the-job expectations, granting you a better understanding of the career itself and how you might fit within it.
Because we could all use another friendly face making that visit to the dentist’s office that much more pleasant to endure.
