Make a Difference as a Dental Assistant
Working in the dental field provides many rewarding opportunities to help others.
If you like the feeling of working in a professional field that can change people’s lives, then dental assisting maybe the career choice for you. Here are examples how people’s lives are changed in the dental field every day.
- Helping a patient get out of pain via any number of dental procedures e.g., extraction, root canal, filling, crown, or etc
- Improving a patient’s smile via crowns, veneers, fillings, braces, or etc
- Giving denture or missing teeth patients a permanent tooth replacement option with dental implants allowing them to chew their food again (e.g., watching a patient bite into an apple again for the first time)
- Volunteering at a local dental clinic to provide free dental care to the needy
- Helping a patient save their teeth via giving them preventative options to keep their teeth, saving a patient’s life by diagnosing oral cancer
