Dental Assistant

Caring for patients

Think about your last dental visit. Your dentist likely worked closely with a dental assistant to perform your exam or procedures. Dental assistants are vital to the safe and efficient operation of the dental office—they assist the dentist in the treatment room, in the lab, and with business administration. If you’re interested in a career that focuses on helping people and offers plenty of variety in the workday, dental assisting is a great choice for you.
