    I know nothing about your area but I imagine you should have several schools near by. Do a search for dental assisting programs in your area. Some schools may require you to have a high school diploma. That doesn’t mean that you can’t apply before you graduate, you just might not be able to start until after graduation. Once you find some schools, contact them and will give you all the information you need in regards to getting started and the requirements needed. You may not need to go to school for dental assisting, some will train you on the job. These employers are very few, so you should go to college to increase your chances of finding a job. Usually the dental assisting colleges are community colleges or technical/vocational colleges. In most schools a dental assisting degree takes just one year.
    The college I attended had career search assistance so it took me only one month to find a job after graduation. I took the dental assistant certification exam which is optional in NE (not sure about NC or VA) but certainly looks good on a resume and may help you get higher pay. Good luck!
