Becoming a dental assistant is a great way to get involved with orthodontist practices, and decide what type of a career that you want to pursue within the industry. Plus it’s a career that has much lower educational requirements, as well as expectations, so it doesn’t take the same level of education if you’re aspiring to this sort of a job early on. This way, it’s actually a career that you can pursue while you’re getting a more deeper final education, or while you really decide what position you want to take up in the industry.

What you’re going to find is that being a dental assistant is a fantastic stepping stone to bigger and better things, and is a great job to pay the bills while you decide. With decent pay as well as job opportunities, this is a great career to start on your road to really advancing your learning or skill set. In fact there are around 295,000 jobs throughout the entire dental industry for assistants, making it one of the most commonly available positions thought the nation. All you need are the 5 keys on how to become a dental assistant, and you cane nurse that you’re poised for major career successes.

1) A good foundation always begins with your education.

There’s a reason that everyone always lectures about the importance of education, and it’s because it makes all the difference when it comes to deciding upon your career path. Most typically, you don’t have to attend a four year school, if your only aspiration is becoming an assistant. But rather you can go to junior college, or you can also go to a trade school with a dental assistant training program, and learn everything that you’re going to need on the job. But some type of education always makes you a better candidate for getting the job, than you would be if you were not properly trained.

2) Dental assistant certification.

Because you don’t need to actually do anything medical with patients, you actually aren’t necessarily required to be certified, but it does always help. Getting some sort of certification from either the ADA or a similar organization is a great way for you to show that you have the chops to do the job, and to do it really well. Plus it’s really going to pad your resume, and anything that pads your resume is something that you really want to do.

3) Figure out if you want to be more administrative or medical in career type.

There are two real types of dental assistant, and you have to choose the sort that you want to be. There are the administrative sorts, and these are basically receptionists that schedule appointments, and that also deal with filing systems and the like. Or you can be more medically minded, so that you can actually work with the doctor with patients, and with some basic procedures at the same time.

4) Look into task specific courses if you want the better dental assistant jobs.

Furthering your education is almost always the type of decision that you want to make, because it’s always beneficial to your job. For example, while assistants aren’t always required to do anything with patients, dentists really like those with the licensing to be able to do certain things. For example, by studying radiological procedures, and then taking the national Radiation Health and Safety exam, you can actually make yourself legally available for performing x-rays. That’s something dentists hate to do themselves, and will always be willing to pay an assistant for.

5) Being a dental assistant is the perfect stepping stone.

With an opportunity like this you can’t waste your chances, and it’s important to realize that this is really the most ideal stepping stone for furthering your career as an orthodontist. The biggest part of knowing how to become a dental assistant, is knowing how to further your education beyond that level. So it’s important that with an assistant position you stay in school to further either your administrative knowledge, or your actual dental knowledge so that you can become a doctor or a clinic manager yourself at some point.
