Doesn’t it seem like just yesterday fall was beginning, and yet, here we are looking down the barrel at winter this very moment. That’s just how time is, seeming to go by faster and faster. In no time at all, we will be in the new year, and you could be on your way to a new career!
In these next few weeks, as you visit with family and shop for the holidays, you could also be preparing to begin your career training as a pediatric dental assistant!
Many people just drift from job to job through their lives; it’s an unfortunate necessity for many people, but it doesn’t have to be for you. Most people are hesitant to pursue a career change because they think that means years invested into a new education, tens of thousands of dollars of debt.
Career training programs are turning that old model on its head. Traditional education has its perks, but the future is all about job specialty training. Don’t spend years investing your efforts in areas that don’t even relate to your field. Instead, focus on the skills you need and you can be done in weeks.
Your Future as a Dental Assistant
Why would you want to be a pediatric dental assistant? I’m glad you asked. Dental assistants are becoming more important than ever.
Within a dental practice, doctors like to focus their efforts on things that only they can do, getting assistance and delegating other patient care to their assistants, much in the same way nurses assist physicians at hospitals. They provide the technical help that the dentist needs while also being the face of the office, preparing and caring for patients.
Does this sound like you?
- Good with kids
- Actively look for ways to help people
- An active listener
- A good decision maker
If you have some or all of these qualities, then you would be a great dental assistant! Don’t know anything about dental care? That’s ok, we will teach you everything you need to know to be qualified for a new career.
Don’t Wait too Long, or it Will be too Late
