Career Outlook: Dental Assistants
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, Dental Assistant “Employment is expected to increase much faster than average; job prospects are expected to be excellent.” Their statement goes on to say, “Employment is expected to grow 36% from 2008 – 2018, which is much faster than the average for all occupations. In fact, Dental Assistants are expected to be among the fastest growing occupations over the 2008 -2018 projection period. Population growth, greater retention of natural teeth by middle-aged and older people, and an increased focus on preventative dental care for younger generations will fuel demand for dental services. Older dentists, who have been less likely to employ assistants or have employed fewer, are leaving the occupation and will be replaced by recent graduates, who are more likely to use one or more assistants. In addition, as dentists’ workloads increase, they are expected to hire more assistants to perform routine tasks, so that they may devote their own time to more complex procedures.”*
Job Prospects: Dental Assistants
“Job Prospects should be excellent, as dentists continue to need the aid of qualified dental assistants. There will be many opportunities for entry-level positions, but some dentists prefer to hire experienced assistants, those who have completed a dental-assisting program, or have met State requirements to take on expanded functions within the office.”*
Wages: Dental Assistants, May 2010
Hourly Wages: $10.90 – $22.64*

“This is something I could get in and do really quickly then have a great job that I am proud about and makes me happy. I like how the class sizes were so small. And you were close with everybody and you got one-on-one time. What I love about my job now is I don’t feel like I am going to work. I am just looking forward to getting there and seeing everyone.”- Alicia
