Dentists, Dental assistants, please help?
First of all do NOT become a RDH ever. There are no jobs for RDHs in all of the USA and most RDHs don't even get health insurance or vacation or sick days! I suggest you apply to any general dentist office or orthodontist office that is looking for a dental assistant and is willing to train...
