Besides graduating from a very expensive vocational program, how can I break into the dental assisting?
I can't afford the tuition for the Dental Assisting programs. I have heard that many Dental Assistants learn there trade on the job. What are some steps I can take to land such an opportunity?
I would suggest you call a few dentists in your hometown. Ask them about their hiring practices and how they feel about hiring someone for OJT. You might have to be an unpaid "apprentice" for awhile
