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.

What’s so special about the South African Dental Association?

Question by londonboy: What’s so special about the South African Dental Association?
I’m not sure if this is still the case but I remember that on tubes of toothpaste I used to see the words “Accredited by the South African Dental Association” or something like that. I always used to wonder what was so special about the South African Dental Assoc. that a huge brand like Colgate for example would feel the need to let everyone know it had been approved by them. Are they world leaders in dental health or something?
