Q&A: How can I be sure that this dental assisting school is accredited?

Question by Waffle: How can I be sure that this dental assisting school is accredited?
The school is the South Florida Dental Assisting School. I looked on the ADA website and they don’t seem to be accredited by them. But, they say they are licensed through the Florida Board of Dentistry and the Florida Board of Independent Education (License #3292). This is their website:

no it doesnt hurt.

The first “braces” were constructed by Pierre Fauchard in 1728. Fauchard’s “braces” consisted of a flat strip of metal, which was connected to teeth by pieces of thread.

I need help with symptoms!?

Question by Pudgygirl: I need help with symptoms!?
I have been to my family physcian and an ENT doctor and they come up with something different everytime but it seems nothing ever helps! I’ve had septoplasty and it didn’t help with these problems either.
My problem/symptoms: Loss of balance! I’m not dizzy though it’s been said I have Vertigo because of fluid in my ears but now the fluid is gone but not the loss of balance!
I feel as though someone is slowly putting a cover over my head and are holding their hands over my ears due to my loss of hearing. I feel like I can’t get enough oxygen into my lungs and my thoughts/ short term memory is terrible! I’m sleepy ALL DAY LONG! Then when bedtime comes I can hardly go to sleep! Does any of this sound familiar???
I have already seen a neurologist.

you can go to webmd.com and they have a symptom checker. not to scare you but it could be a tumor because my dad had a loss of hearing in one ear and we later found out it was a non cancerous tumor. it was removed however my dad had nerve damage and has permanant hearing loss in one ear. so good luck.

I have the same problem, it is anxiety… you just can’t seem to shut off your brain. Try to de-stress before you go to bed. If that does not help, talk to your doctor about anxiety medication… My mom says that it works wonders for her( I am breastfeeding and cannot use any of those meds. As soon as I am done, I am going to give them a try.)

Moving to Texas Will my dental radiography license transfer?

Question by susan s: Moving to Texas Will my dental radiography license transfer?
I am thinking of moving to Texas. I have a dental radiography license through the state of Michigan.

Answer by Jenn
Contact the state board of dental examiners in Texas to determine what you need to work in that state. Some states have a reciprocity agreement, some states do not have any requirements. You can also check out the DANB website (www.DANB.org). They have some info posted there as well. Many states accept the DANB RHS certificate if that was what you had to take to obtain your Michigan License. You can also contact the American Dental Assistants Association in Chicago (www.dentalassistant.org). They can put you in touch with the Texas Dental Assistants Association who can help you with anything Dental Assisting related to Texas.

Good Luck!
