cda in Murfreesboro, Tennessee

Some hygiene programs require a minimum of dental knowlege prior to entering the program. My suggestion is before you put out the money for DA go to your dentist and see if you can job shadow or if he will consider hiring you on a tempory basis since you are interested in Hygiene School. Also, you should know, during hygiene school they are required to take alginate impressions and learn some of the things DA's do. Even though you will almost never see a hygienist take an impression they are required to do it in school. So being a DA first does have it's advantages when going into hygiene school. Personally I wouldn't shell out the money for both, when some offices will hire you off the street and train you for DA.

Hi, I would market small practices. Most offices do prefer someone with some experience. However, a lot of the smaller practices are not high volume offices and are willing to train you the way they want you, and sometimes view someone with experience as unable to adapt because they don't want to break habits they acquired over the years. Also, let them know you are willing to sub. or work part time. This will allow you to get your foot in the door and get familiar with how the office works as well as how the doctor works.

Caroline in Washington, District of Columbia said: I'm a dental assistant with no experience,I apply every where but no one has called me for interwiews ,I'm getting sad about that,don't know what to do!! any advice please.... to caritochaucca@hotmail.com......Thanks

I would imagine that if anyone in here got hired on as a DA without experiance then these people who's taken 2-4 years in a college or taken 9 dreadful/struggling months out of their working lifes to make it better.... Well its just not something that happens and thats why everyonce who gets hired has been in some type of school where you actually know what your doing before you go into the field AND IN PLUS THE DA IS POSED TO KNOW MORE THAN THE DOCTOR SO IF YOU HAVE NO EXPERIANCE IN THE DA FIELD AND YOU THINK A DENTIST IS GOING TO HIRE SOMEONE WHO DOESNT EVEN KNOW WHAT HIS CEMENTS ARE FOR AN IMPRESSION lets just say he doesnt even want to waste his time training you those 2 years of college stuff that you HAVE TO KNOW before even thinking about applying!!!!

wow, that was a pretty harsh comment. Not to mention completley way off base. I had no formal training when I entered the DA career field. I was hired off the street and did 6months of OJT and then was sent to take the weekend course/test. 2yrs. of training is not necessary at all. I have worked in many offices over the years and have had no problem getting hired being that I only had OJT and the weekend certification program. Dental Assistant's do not know more than the dentist. If so the title would be D.D.S, not DA. I feel that I am very knowledgeable in my experience but will never be cocky enough to say I know more than the Dentist, know matter how well I do my job.

despartely seeking in Glencoe, Illinois

58 months ago

I have been seeking a dentist assistant job. I have had 2 interviews One of which they wanted to hire me but the girl I was suppose to replace decided to come back to work full time. Second one required a working interview where i was compared to 3 others with experience and me without it. Of course the one with experience had an edge over me here. I had dentist assisting experience over 17 years ago while i was in high school. But since then I do not have anything current and would need to be retrained. So frustrating knowing at 16 I found this job immediately with no work history what so ever. I am still keeping my hopes high. I know that there will be a dentist that is willing to train. Just need to keep trying and not giving up. I was in the doorway so close that I just know there will be another dentist out there willing to train the right person.

certified Dental Assistant in Pleasant Hill, California said: no dont do a mistake and go for DA first. Go for dental hygiene right away. my goal is to become a hygienist. i went for DA programe..and it wasn't really helpfull. Dentists told me y didnt u go for hygiene straight. DA doesnt really help. SO dont do the same mistake i did. Dont waste your time. if u wanna go to school. register in the Dental hygiene programe.

The Dental Hygiene field is saturated....so if you plan on training, I would first recommend checking out the real "#'s" of R.D.H.'s with "set, regular hours/days" of work to pay the monthly bills....a lot of competition and backstabbing in our field due to the oversaturation....very expensive to train. Do you presently work in any Dental offices? If so, shadow and ask the R.D.H.'s what ben's (if any they receive, many in today's economy and abundance of R.D.H.'s recieve: no med/dent, Ceu's, vacation, bonuses.....if you plan on going into this field, start an IRA NOW, because most of us have to save on our own...retirement ben's ....a dream , not a reality for MOST....GL

dont give up i was in the same boat, but the best thing to do is go in person to your local dentists and see if they will let you work on a voluntary basis, i went in to a few practices and then finally i came across one who were looking to train someone up, and gave me an interview there and then.

Forget it. I knew it was a lost cause before I got out of the class. But I finished it just because I already lost the money. I never got certified or did anything else. Like I said I knew it would be a waste of more money. The people who took my money knew I was wasting it and they didn't care. But maybe someday they will. Their class was a lot smaller this time a round. Maybe people are reading my posts and thinking things over. This brings me some sort of satisfaction anyway. Four students less is losing eight thousand dollars. I wish I could have said "give me a refund and I will not warn others" But of course I couldn't do that so this is the next best thing. And it is all true. Give these people in Bellmead your hard earned money for the dumb DA class and you will be throwing it out the window. Not to mention the time and gas going to the dentist office to train. We had students from Killeen and other areas. Trust me when I say you will not get a job. On their website they used to have testimonials. Now they have none. I am hoping eventually I will no longer see that ad they run every two months. Become a DA. in Ten Weeks. We will Help You Get A Job. Only 1950.00. A lot of money to throw out the window.

Took the DATS program ! HUGE RIP OFFF i have gotten turned down from 4 working interviews because i have no clue what im doing.I finished the dats program with a perfect score, because it was all bookwork never even sat chairside. I learned more from these working interviews then i did in the whole DATS program. My thinking is keep trying but my advice is run from DATS!!! they basically taught me how to take xrays and thats about all so i get into these offices looking like an idiot saying i went to school

tlynn in Murfreesboro, Tennessee

I use to live in Plant City, Fl. I went to Ft. Lauderdale and took a weekend course in Expanded Duties, also in radiology. This is how I got my certification along with 6months OJT. That was a few years ago, I have worked in several offices since.
Check into it at Nova South Eastern Dental University. It was all hands on training, the course was great!
Keep applying, some Dentist's prefer to hire people with no experience. They like to train them in their way of doing things. Experienced assistants are often perceived as unable to adapt, also as having bad habits. Meaning, they like to do things their way and not the way of the office, or taking short cuts that are not safe.
Hope this info helps. Good luck!

people are still throwing their money away on the DA class in Bellmead Texas. I hope they didn't need that two thousand for something else because they just threw it out the window. It is so sad to think of the many people out there that needed that money and just refuse to face reality. I still say eventually the word will get around. But for now they will take your money so don't worry about that. And unlike me you can never say someone did not try to warn you.

It feels good, when someone is begging, but one day the situation may change. Imaging...you are saying "I want to quit" and he says "OK. Go ahead. I can't hold you anymore, you are free to do whatever you want". And what do you do? Quit, of cause, but it will be different QUIT. You will feel that QUIT all of your life. You will try to find out what happened, what changed him...and you will learn, that he's begging already a different assistant or a receptionist, or someone else. The mistake of most women, that they think they are special in all the WORLD...and no one can change it. But it's always someone who is better than you...unfortunately.

He'd probably beg our hygienist too if she quit,but I just wanted to get an assisting job where the doctors in the office were more easy to deal with.the Dr. hit on me all the time too.

I completed the Penn Foster Dental Assiting program. SAVE YOUR MONEY!! First and foremost, you get no hands on experience. Clinic experience is important. Despite how much information you can get from reading, you dentist want two things, experience and a GREAT PERSONALITY.

Upon taking the DANB Infection Control Exam, I found that nothing that Penn Foster included in their literature for study was even on the exam. I am very happy I took the time to read additional info on the topic on varies websites and books I could find.

I got online and found all the dentist I could find in my area and to my suprise, even without any "experience" I was phone back saying they appreciated my proactive and eager attitude and that was the kinds of person they were looking to hire. They asked me in for an interview and would be willing to train me.

I have also heard that a lot of practices are looking for people without experience, due to their particular was of liking things done, and would rather train, than REtrain you.

Another thing Ive found helpful is to shadow, shadow, shadow. If you know someone in the profession, as to spend a day with them and watch. This inst hands on experience, but it at least counts for something (getting family with set ups, patient interaction, etc.) MUCH better than wasting time and money on any online course.

Im in the same boat I graduated back in Jan of 2010 and still haven't been able to find a job.

How do they expect us to get experience unless we actually have the opportunity to work.

Most offices want x-ray certified and experience neither of which I have. So everytime I apply somewhere I dont even really get my hopes up anymore due to the fact that I know I wont be what they want.

Is there anything I can do to get a job. I have wanted a job in the career since I was 3, I am 25 now and just want to enjoy what I do for a living.
