Question by joshyzgirl: Question about being a Dental Assistant and a Dentist?
I plan to go to school for Pre-Dentistry to be a dentist… right now there is gonna be a class starting every saturday for 12 saturdays to become a dental assistant. Is it a good idea to do that and become that as a job during college that i start in the fall.

Becoming a dental assistant will certainly help you to know whether or not you like the profession. The ‘weekend only’ schools you are talking about can be okay but I would learn the laws and regulations for the state that you live in. I almost took a 12 weekend course but then found out that I could become a dental assistant through my local community college. It counts for college credits for electives and I was able to receive financial aid to pay for all of it. As for being a dentist predent.org is a community of pre-dental students that help you down that road.
