Become a Dentist


Becoming a Registered Dental Hygienist is an extremely rewarding career.  It is extremely competitive to be accepted to dental hygiene programs.  Once accepted, there is a large financial burden to complete the hygiene program.  Open and Affordable Dental wants to help you in the process of becoming a hygienist.  We consider ourselves the best dental organization at creating future hygienists through our Become a Hygienist program.  You will begin as a dental assistant at your favorite Open and Affordable Dental location.  No experience is needed.  We will then train you on all clinical aspects of being a dental assistant.  You will learn sterilization techniques, how to take x-rays, how to take impressions, how to chart periodontal probing depths, how to assist for fillings, extractions, root canals, implants, and much much more.  You will gain x-ray, OSHA, and CPR certificates.  You will be working directly with doctors and hygienists on your first day of employment.  You will gain all of the shadowing hours and clinical requirements to prove that you have the experience to help get accepted to hygiene school.  We will help you make the best decision for you as to which hygiene school is your best fit.  We will help you with financial aid during hygiene school.  After you graduate from hygiene school, you are guaranteed a job at Open and Affordable Dental as a Registered Dental Hygienist.  You will then be able to work with the same amazing doctors and staff you already know and trust.
