Become a Dental Assistant


Becoming a dental assistant is an extremely rewarding career.  Many choose to attend dental assisting programs that cost thousands of dollars and require up to 2 years of schooling.  At Open and Affordable Dental you get to skip the high costs and time commitment of school and are trained on the job.  No prior experience is necessary. We consider ourselves the best dental organization at creating dental assistants through our Become a Dental Assistant program.  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.
