Dental Assisting is a fun and exciting job with many career options to choose from. There are many different dental specialties to work within and various tasks to be done! Dental assisting can range from cleaning patients teeth, assisting the dentist, taking x-rays, working at the front desk, sterilizing, working with dental insurance, and much more! Dental specialties offer a variety of job options such as Pediatric Dentistry, Oral Surgery, Orthodontics, or Endodontics. The choices are amazing! Assistants can choose whether they would like to work on kids, teenagers, or adults.
Flexible Work Schedules
Many dental offices are open 3 to 5 days per week. We have found that busy Moms are able to work part-time or full-time and many offices have hours that allow for parents to be home when their kids are. For those interested in a great job with flexible hours, Dental Assisting is for you!
Dental Assistants are a MUST in dental offices. There is always a need for an assistant and an extra pair of hands. Dentistry is also a necessary part of society for the interest of our over-all health. Job security is a large part of what makes dentistry such an appealing career choice; there will always be a need for Dental Assistants! Dentists usually enjoy training assistants to their own unique techniques and chosen office environment. The pay is above average in the workforce and for those willing to work, pay raises and bonuses are a definite plus!
Good Workplace Environment
The dental office is a professional environment that exists to offer dental services to patients. Assistants are expected to be happy, comforting people who help the patients relax and prepare for their dental work. Offices are typically fast-paced and goal-oriented which is great for those who despise boredom! Because dental work can be unpleasant for many patients, the staff are expected to be friendly, gentle, and professional. Dental offices are also very clean and orderly, requiring organized staff and proper training.
We offer many training courses in Dental Assisting, including fall classes in dental specialties and office management. For more information, visit our website or call our Dental Assisting Utah County office today to schedule a tour!
