Dental Assisting School?
No Experience Necessary
Question by Butters: Dental Assisting School?
I am in my second week of dental assisting school. I knew the classes would be tough, and I’m doing fine with all the studying. My question is, did anyone else go to school for dental assisting (or hygiene) and have to deal with all sorts of rules, such as only wearing certain color hair ties, don’t wear any jewelry, wear a certain kind of sock, change shoes between the classroom and the clinic, etc? They seem to be going a little overboard about it. Is it like that in a dental office as well? And while working as an assistant, do you write down a medical history for a patient, we are supposed to ask the patient every question on the sheet and write it down for them, but whenever I have gone to the doctor I fill it out myself and give it to the receptionist. And one final question: whenever I have gone to the dentist, they have never taken my blood pressure, pulse, and respirations, but we have to do that for every patient in school. As a working assistant, do you take vital signs? Thanks!

Yes, dental assisting has become more involved and strict. How about changing schools? Going for something else in the medical field. Yes, it is VERY tuff to work in a destist office and the pay is low. Check your options out and go from there. Sorry you are having so much trouble in the first few weeks of school. It may NOT be to late to drop the course and get a 100% refund, and go for something else. Best Wishes and Good luck.
