Question by insatiable_van: How can a get a position at a Dental office?
I live in Georgetown, TX and I’m hoping to get a position at a dental office for experience because I really want to become a dentist one day. So, does anyone know any dental offices in Georgetown, Round Rock, or even Austin, TX? Oh by the way I’m only 16. Thanks a lot!

You might not be able to get a job, but to get some sort of dental experience you can volunteer. Check ADA.org for information in your area.

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.

Question by : Are there any dentists who have entered dental school with a undergraduate gpa below 3.5?
And is Calculus essential for dental school. All schools are different the one I am looking at only suggests calculus.
Answer by hikarihime9029
Are you in America?
In America, most dental schools do not look at your undergraduate GPA. They look mainly at your DAT scores. Make sure you have really good DAT scores. Calculus is not required. It all depends on your pre-dental or pre-professional curriculum requires.
