Dental assistants work exclusively with a dentist to performing cleanings, check-ups and other treatments. They can be employed in private dental practices and clinics, and public health units. Dental assistants are still required to undertake specialized training and receive certification, but the educational requirements are not as extensive those for dentists or orthodontists. It is an accessible and affordable way for many people to build a sustainable career in the dental and health care industry.
