“That Alabama is one of the hardest places to land a career without the experience of assisting unless you know the right people within the field. If your just looking to learn the hands on side and work on business side of dentistry it is perfect when meeting bouncers and presenting treatment plans and importance in being able to explain procedures. This also makes the patient feel comfortable because they know it is a strict difference in what an assistant does and doctor do.”
