Dental assistant school in Texas is filled with a diverse mix of applicants who want to become dental assistants.
One such candidate is Dee Dee Jackson, who says she’s interested in working in dentistry, but she is also looking for a new challenge.
Jackson, who lives in Houston, says she was initially turned away from the dental school because of the time commitment she would have to work from home and the amount of paperwork required to qualify for dental school.
The 24-year-old says she wanted to make sure she didn’t make a mistake in applying, so she was excited when she got a call from a dental assistant recruiter in December 2016, and was able to apply to the dental assistant program.
“When I got the call, I knew that this was a really exciting opportunity for me and I couldn’t be happier to be able to work in dental school,” Jackson told Business Insider.
Jackson said she already has a great relationship with her dental assistant supervisor, who she calls her “heart” because she’s the only one who is her age who knows her.
“She’s very much the only person that knows me,” Jackson said.
I know I have a very strong and dedicated person, and I’m really excited about being a dental school dental assistant because it’s going to be a lot of fun,” Jackson added.
Jackson said she’s already spent about 30 hours a week teaching students how to apply for the program.
Jackson is applying for the position of dental assistant, and she said she plans to spend up to 30 hours per week teaching her students to perform dental work.
While Jackson said the school is very busy, she’s excited to be part of a group of dental assistants who are learning how to be better dental assistants in the classroom.
Students who take the Dental Assistant program will learn about the role of dental school, dental hygiene and dental hygiene technology.
They will also receive a course on the history and development of the dental profession and dental technology.
Dentistry schools have historically been popular choices for aspiring dental assistants, and Jackson is one of the few who has successfully landed a dental appointment at one.
She has received a number of phone calls from prospective dental assistants since she landed her dental appointment, and hopes that more dental assistants will be drawn to her program.”
I’m very excited about this opportunity and I hope that people in the community can see that it’s something that’s very worthwhile,” Jackson explained.
Dental assistants will not only teach students how the dental industry works, but they will also work closely with students to develop dental hygiene education and technology, as well as dental hygiene training.
In order to earn a dental assistants certification, students must complete a six-month internship at a dental facility in Texas, as the program requires a bachelor’s degree in dental hygiene, dental technology, or both.
A Dental Assistants program is also open to students in other states, but Jackson said it is the first one in Texas.”
The fact that I’m actually in Texas will definitely make this program a bit more accessible to the public,” Jackson promised.
According to the program’s website, dental assistants are expected to complete six to 12 months of professional development and training before they can apply for a dental license.
