You’re smart to want to avoid those private For-profit schools such as heald, Everest, devry and Carrington. If the local community college (or county vo-tech adult school for dental assistant) has an accredited program from the “American dental association”, those schools are usually more affordable and reputable.

Before taking pre-req courses for dental assisting or dental hygiene, please look through and peruse some dental textbooks such as those found at the local community college library that offers DA or DH or the local dental/medical school library. Some patients may have severe dental disease which may be tough for some to handle. If you haven’t done some job shadowing, please find out about that as well.

For accredited programs in DA or DH: http://www.ada.org/5500.aspx
