What is a Dental Assistant?

A dental assistant is an exciting career in its own right and can become a stepping stone for other careers in the dental field.


Exciting Career in High Demand

The dental assistant is a vital member of the dental team. Working sometimes as the dentist’s “right arm,” ears, eyes, and voice, dental assistants may very well have more verbal contact with the average patient than the dentist! Dental assistants use clinical, technical, laboratory, administrative, and communication skills tailored specifically for the dental office in which they work; yet they must also be responsive to the evolving dental profession.

In addition to assisting dentists during procedures such as cleanings, dental assistants also help with tasks such as x-rays, whitenings, and casting impressions. With so many different ways dental assistants are a part of a dental team, often no two days are the same.

There is a huge demand for dental assistants and the need is projected to grow 19% in the next 4 years according to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics.

Those who earn a vocational degree for dental assisting can join the workforce faster than students who attend longer programs, according to the National Center for Education Statistics. This means trade school graduates can leverage the benefits of the strong demand sooner rather than later.

The need for dental assistants is also nationwide, and those with a degree and experience can find work practically anywhere. There is also the opportunity for specialization if you wish to work for an oral surgeon, orthodontist or other type of dental specialist.

And the income potential is also increasing. In 2017 the median annual wage for dental assistants was $37,630 and in 2020 the median annual wage was $41,180.

Dental assistants also have the ability to continue their education and expand their opportunities into other areas of the dental industry, such as a dental hygienist, treatment plan coordinator, lab tech, and dentist.
