Why Become a Dental Assistant
Not only are dental assistants a pivotal aspect of any and every dental practice, but they’re also extremely respected for the work they do. As a dental assistant, you’re a dental professional and as such, are immersed in a professional, productive, and important work environment.
Dental assistants are very well paid and appreciated. Working as a dental assistant will ensure a steady, livable income — in Utah, the yearly income for a dental assistant average is between 28 thousand and 43 thousand dollars.
Dental assistants have great job security, as dental assistants are needed in every dental practice, no matter how big or small. Additionally, people will always need their teeth taken care of, so even in the face of an economic recession, you can rest assured that your job is secure.
Enjoy a 4 day work week with no nights or weekends! Most dental practices are open during traditional daytime hours, have holidays off, and can work full-time hours in 4 days to enjoy an extra day off! This means you will be in a job that takes care of you, values your time, and is looking out for your well-being.
