Question by Cringger: Anyone a dental assistant or dental hygienist? Looking into becoming one… want some advice?
For anyone who is a dental assistant or dental hygienist could you please tell me how difficult the schooling was? How easy was it to find a job? What pay range are you in? Which is more worth it? The assistant or the hygienist? What’s the major differences? Anything from personal experience that you could help me with would be awesome! Thanks!

Currently in school to become a EFDA (expanded functions dental assistant). At the particular school I attend it was a lot of lectures and tests the first few months, you really need to be good at taking notes. It’s not as difficult as some things would be, but it’s not easy…nothing ever is. I’ve been told the pay range for a dental assistant is $ 11-$ 15 but can go up much higher. I would say dental hygienist would be the best way to go, but it’s more schooling, more expensive and more work. But in the end you’ll be making more money. The dental assistant IMO is on the bottom of the ladder, does the most work around the office/clinic and gets paid the least.
