If you're intrigued by dentistry but not sure you want to commit to dental school just yet, why not test out the career by becoming a dental assistant major?

Studying to be a dental assistant will prepare you to provide patient care. You'll get patients ready for all sorts of procedures, maintain equipment, undertake basic cleanings, perform x-rays, and may occasionally help in the reception area, depending on how large the practice you work in is.

Dentistry is a growing industry. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the demand for dental assistants will jump by 25 percent from 2012-2022, a much higher rate than average occupations.
