What do dental assistants do? and do you need school for it?
No Experience Necessary
Question by LizGomez: What do dental assistants do? and do you need school for it?
So I am from Chicago,IL, ( a 19 yr old college student looking for a part-time job) and I searched up jobs on craigslist.com. I saw a dental assistant job that said No-Experience necessary. Then it didn’t ask me for any resume, it just asked me to send a picture of me smiling and to tell them my hobbies and if I respect my parents. I was like “this has got to be a joke?”. But I did it anyways, and so they responded me to go and apply. I was just wondering what exactly a dental assistant does? Is it necessary to have some type of certificate of dentistry? I imagine it is an office job. Please let me know! I would appreciate it very much!
I am also cautious of this since it seems out of the ordinary.
I know it seems like a scam, but they gave me the address of the place. I have researched dental assisting, and it doesn’t seem simple, I know it is not. But I want to figure out if it is possible they train you? I thought it was a scam too but I kind of agre with the 2nd guy, it is probably to give minimum wage. I just want a job, cause now in days its difficult to attain one.

I know in my state a dental assistance has to be certified. Its usually a 9 month program and then you take a state certification. Im no dental assistant (i have a year left of nursing school to be an RN) but my sister did it for awhile, and they checked people in, took them back to the room, did the minor cleaning of the teeth, flouride, etc, and assisted the dentist when he did his work. They mainly just took care of the patient for the dentist
Id be careful of the listing you responded to. Ive never heard of an ad on there asking for anything like that.
