Acerca de

If you’ve ever thought about becoming a dental assistant, 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.

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.
