One of the major question facing people who are considering attending dental assistant school here at Northwest is, how difficult will it be for me to get my first job?
In reality, this is a major question in the mind of anyone who is willing to invest both their money and time, and take the risks necessary, to pursue their dream career. Thankfully landing your dream position as a dental assistant in Las Vegas doesn’t have to be a difficult procedure.
Here at Northwest, we’ll give you the training, support, and motivation you’ll need to go out and your ideal dental assisting job.
Experience is something that is commonly mentioned when it comes to hiring recent graduates. Most companies prefer to hire candidates with previous experience in the role on offer because they require less instruction, cost less to train, come with recommendations and have already proven themselves in the position.
In order to overcome this barrier to you getting your first dental assisting job, our dental assisting program offers an externship to all of our students. We understand the value of having practical hands-on experience and we use our excellent relationships with local dentistry facilities to give our students the opportunity to learn on the job and enter the job market with real marketable experience.
One of the best things about starting a career as a dental assistant is that there are a large number of open positions compared to the job of qualified applicants and that trend it expected to continue. Employment for Dental Assistants is expected to increase 18% from 2014-2024, faster than average for all occupations according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
Because of this shortage of dental assistants, you could earn your first dental assisting job based on your professionalism, friendliness, and by demonstrating to potential employers that you have the skills and demeanor of an excellent dental assistant.
To help you find your ideal dental assisting position, our dedicated on-campus Career Services team is here to work with you to help you find the best dental assisting employment opportunity in Las Vegas that fits your needs.
Choosing the right school at which to train as a dental assistant can be critical to you getting the dental assisting position that you want. Most dental assisting schools provide training that seems, on the surface, to be very similar, but training isn’t the only thing a school provides.
Before you decide on which dental assisting school to attend its best to do your research into what they offer. The best dental assistant schools offer you a wide range of training facilities, instruction by seasoned professionals, and the support you need to both excel at your course and find your dream job afterward.
Here at Northwest, we have a student-centered philosophy that drives to provide the best for our future graduates, including:
