I graduated 12 years ago from a local training facility in Dental Laboratory Technology. I worked as a model tech for about a year, but unfortunately I had to quit due to family (children) obligations. I have been trying to get back into the dental field for some time now. I took another course in Administrative Dental
Assisting and am learning Dentrix, scheduling, and dental coding, etc.
I am 55, high energy and flexible. Any thoughts as to whether or not I have a chance to get back in? Thank you for your thoughts!

Hi there, your never too old to start over! i suggest you apply to some dental offices and volunteer to obtain some good skills so that you can have more qualifications on your resume that way you could land a good comfortable job at a dental office of your choice! Goodluck!

Hi Linda Will you please let me know where you are taking the Dentrix computer courses. I am living in Canton, Tx. which is east of Garland, past Rockwall, Forney etc. and then Canton. We have not sold our home in Garland as yet, so I have a place to stay. I have worked for dentist in Dallas for several years off of Webb Chapel and he had Easy Dental, but he never used all of the Easy Dental program. I have excellent references and a referral from the dentist I worked for. And actually if you could teach the program to me I would be glad to pay you. Please get back to me on this. If you need my c/p # I will be glad to give it to you. Thank you so very much. Fran
