Both curriculums will require a lot of reading and studying. Please be aware that there are *not* supposed to be too many jobs for MAs (or medical billers or coders) despite what those private For-profit schools proclaim. (I’m not sure about the actual job prospects for dental assistants though
Before you take any pre-req courses for DA, please peruse some dental textbooks such as those found at the community college library that offers either a DA or dental hygiene program (or the local dental/medical school library). Some patients may have severe dental disease which can make it difficult for some individuals to handle.
I do know that the dental assistant should have a good short-term memory as the dentist may give verbal/oral instructions to the DA such as for a cavity filling or such.
With regard to schooling, please do *avoid* those for-profit schools such as devry, ITT tech, strayer, U of P, capella, brown Mackie, full sail, Everest, pima medical, argosy, penn foster and others. Their course credits usually do NOT transfer to other schools, even if the for-profit school is regionally accredited as opposed to only nationally accredited.
Please instead consider the more affordable *community college* and/or the *state-public university* (or even the county vo-tech adult school) as long as the program is accredited within the industry. Just an fyi that “American public university” is a for-profit school.
