Dental Field Provides Career Opportunity

The dental assisting profession is expected to experience dramatic growth over the next decade - with job openings projected to increase more than 29% through 2016.

The projected growth in this field will be to due to a growing population, greater retention of natural teeth by middle-aged and older individuals and an increased emphasis on preventative dental care. With an increase in dental services at all age levels, there will be a definite need for qualified dental assistants.

Open the door to career opportunity! With most dentists preferring to hire assistants with dental assistant training, you can get ahead by enrolling in a dental assistant program today. Most programs can be completed in less than a year and provide the all-inclusive training you need. Your education will teach you how to:

  • Work side by side with a dentist - make casts of teeth, clean removable appliances, make temporary crowns
  • Communicate with patients - get dental history, advise about dental care
  • Manage dental tools - disinfect tools, arrange tools on dental tray, prepare patients for treatment
  • Oversee the dental office - schedule appointments, maintain records, manage payments

Dentists are expected to hire more dental assistants to perform routine tasks so that they can devote a greater percentage of their own time to more complex procedures - leaving more opportunities for the trained dental assistant.
