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.
