Question by : whats it like being a dental assistant?
If anyone out there has any advice on what its like to be a dental assistant that would be great. I start my dental assistant classes in less than a week and i just wanted to know how the class experience is and how the job is as well. im pretty nervous about the whole thing.

Hey, don’t be nervous! You’re going to like this!
I never studied assisting in school – I learned on the job – but I thought it was really fun. You get to do so many things, and learn so much. And on the job there are so many interesting people to meet all day – you’ll NEVER be bored.
There is a real satisfaction in assisting. You’re making a difference in someone’s health, and it’s really a fascinating field – all the different instruments, procedures, materials – it just opens up a whole world to you that you never knew existed. You’ll learn how to take, develop and mount x-rays, you’ll learn about all the different impression materials, you’ll take alginates for study models and pour them up and trim them – it really is a good time, if you like working with your hands.
Sorry I can’t help you with the classroom thing – but you’ll probably catch on a lot quicker with an organized school, than with a dentist showing you the ropes. Plus, you’ll learn many ways of doing the same thing, rather than just one dentist’s personal preferences.
You’re gonna love it! Relax!
