How can I get a job in a dentists’ office?

Question by Simple: How can I get a job in a dentists’ office?
I am going to school to become a dentist and I am a sophomore in college. I work at a grocery store but I would rather get my foot in the door and get some dental experience. I have met people who became dental assistants without even going to college, they got to work with people doing little things like telling them to spit in a cup and all that. How hard is it to start working at one of these offices? BTW, I don’t want to be a receptionist, I want to be in the actual environment. What should I say to the owners of these clinics and how should I present myself?
Tique, dental assistants do more work than what I was describing. I don’t expect to be an actual dental assistant without a full education or experience. The people I met without an education got to clean up around the area and do some small work with the patients, they were not actual dental assistants and that is what I am interested in until I finish college. Your answer doesn’t help me at all, but thanks.
emmalue, I wasn’t knocking the receptionist position. I just don’t have an appropriate speaking voice for a job like that. I am very business-minded and am always dressed professionally but I really like the idea that you hired a woman on impulse. I guess that shows me that I have a chance. Thank you.

If you think about it, the body will see the piercing as something outside-or something that should not be there. Firstly, the perforations can damage the oral periodontal tissue.

The mouth itself is not “dirty”, but home to millions of tiny organisms that do have the potential to cause infection.
