Why Become a Registered Dental Assistant?

Low Cost & Time Barriers + Attractive Outlook

A career in Dental Assisting is very rewarding given the wide range of interactions, responsibilities, and experiences you can have. Just as important, it does not require dedicating two-four years of your life and tens of thousands of dollars to just get your foot in the door. In addition to the low barriers, a career as an RDA boasts a median salary of $40,080 according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. Also, the job outlook from 2019-2029 is projected to grow 7% annually.

Dental Assistant Job Description

Now, you may be asking yourself: what do dental assistants do exactly? Well, they perform a variety of tasks around a dental office. An RDA, on any given day, could prepare patients, work areas, and/or equipment for treatments and procedures. After, they could provide assistance during those procedures. Other duties include, but are not limited to taking molds and impressions, performing X-rays, administrative/front office work, billing assistance, and more!

Dental assistants are essential to the smooth running of any dental office. You will be the primary touchpoint for patients, and it is so important to make them feel at ease with a great attitude and confidence in your own abilities! We hope to provide you with both of these as you enter this rewarding career.
