Dental Assistants

Tips for Entry

When you visit your dentist, talk to the dental assistant about the career and how you might enter it.

Attend an accredited dental assistant program after high school to put yourself in the best position to obtain a job and continue to advance.

Use every opportunity to increase your experience on the job by doing special tasks, such as making casts of a patient's teeth or making materials for replacement teeth.
