Dental assisting or hygienest??
No Experience Necessary
Question by Andrea B: Dental assisting or hygienest??
I have decided to go to school to become a dental hygienest. I have no experience in this field. I was wondering if I should become an assistant first or just go straight for hygiene. I am very smart and a quick learner. Do you think its possible or will I be completely lost??

You can do dental hygiene school with no assisting experience, but it is much easier after you have worked as an assistant and learned the dental terms, procedures, etc. If you have some time try and get an assisting job or even just see if someone will let you observe assistants/hygienists for the summer. I worked 2 years part time before going to dental hygiene school. I knew a lot more than those who had no experience. My dental hygiene school also gave more points if you had worked as an assistant toward you total application points. Better chance of being accepted.
PS you won’t be lost you will just have a little more to learn
