Which is better ‘Dental Assistant’ or ‘Dental Hygienist’?
Dental assistants work in all aspects of a dental practice. Dental hygienists are very specialized and thus limit themselves to that field of specialty in the dental office.
Over the years we have had many dental assistants who have taken their skills, love of dentistry, and applied to hygiene school becoming great dental hygienists. Many dental hygienists want to retain their dental assisting skills and after practicing Hygiene for a time, have asked to spend some time periodically working as dental assistants.
Many hygienists have their own dental assistants that they work with daily.
Dental hygiene school is very competitive, and many Dental assistants have found that their time and training working in a dental practice has given them a ‘leg up’ in their acceptance into Dental hygiene school. After hygiene school, their dental assistance office experience will confidently help them in obtaining work as a Hygienist, and make them more productive in their new role as a Dental Hygienist.
I am so glad I chose to go to Apex Dental Assisting School! The instructors are so awesome, they’re super personable and kind and give you tons of one on one time to make sure you have a good understanding of everything and are comfortable with what you’re doing. The smaller classroom size makes it much easier to learn and ask questions, and for me was a lot more comfortable and easy to participate. My favorite part about it was all the hands-on training that we would receive each time we came to class. We were able to practice things like taking X-Rays, Charting, taking impressions of teeth, setting up for procedures, sterilizing, and SO much more! Your classmates become your practice patients which makes it much easier because we’re all learning and having someone there to help. That, along with everything we learned from the textbook and discussion helped me to be much more prepared and adjust easily to my first job as a Dental Assistant. For everything you get from this class, it is well worth the money! I’d recommend it to anyone who wants to be a Dental Assistant.
