Hi, I took DA classes at 43yo. I work part time (2 days/week) at the back office. I don't know front office. I mean, if you are a DA and work in the back office, you are on your feet whole day. (If it's ok with you).
One more thing. I have hard time finding a job. The one that I have is through my friend. I have gone to probably 10 or more interviews, and they don't hire me. (I am in CA). It has been almost a year since I graduated.
You will have more chances if you know front office, and are bilingual in Spanish. Also, they want experience.
So, if you want to wait until you will volunteer at some dental office for a year, maybe then you might be hired.
Maybe you should consider other options.......
