Its not really math.. but you have to take courses in biology and stuff like that which is science which is sort of the same as math.

Here in Canada it is a 1 year course semester 3 is over summer so its a full year NOT 8 months.. that might be different in the USA.

but in college its different. you dont need to be good at math to take a Dental Assisting course.. you dont even have to know about teeth. they TEACH you. they teach you everything you need to know.. even anything that involves math.

Id definatley recommend this course as it is high/decent paying about 20-25 dollars and hour and you can advance on to be a Dental Hygenist IF you want (you dont have to) which pays like 35-45 dollars an hour.

great course you should definatley take it. dont be scared even if you are bad at math. they will teach you im bad at math as well. i failed math AND biology in school and I’m still going to take this course. just make sure you realize college is ALOT of homework. just go suck it up for a year.. do all your homework and have NO life for a year just suck it up then when its all over you will have a very rewarding career :) good luck great choice i hope you do it!
