Career Outlook

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics: “Employment of dental assistants is projected to grow 18 percent from 2014 to 2024, much faster than the average for all occupations. Ongoing research linking oral health and general health will likely continue to increase the demand for preventive dental services. Dentists will continue to hire more dental assistants to complete routine tasks, allowing the dentist to see more patients in their practice and spend their time on more complex procedures. As dental practices grow, more dental assistants will be needed. As the large baby-boom population ages, and as people keep more of their original teeth than did previous generations, the need to maintain and treat teeth will continue to increase the need for dental assistants.”

Pay: “The national median annual wage of dental assistants was $35,980 in 2015. The median wage is the wage at which half the workers in an occupation earned more than that amount and half earned less. The lowest 10 percent earned less than $22,680, and the top 10 percent earned more than $47,090.

Most dental assistants work full time, however part time positions are available too. Almost 2 in 5 assistants worked part time in 2010. Some work evenings or weekends, depending on the hours of operation in the office where they work”

Wages in Utah may vary from the national average. For more information from The Bureau of Labor Statistics, visit: http://www.bls.gov/ooh/healthcare/dental-assistants.htm

Dental Assisting can be a stepping stone to further your career in the dental profession. Many Dental Assistants use this training as an added qualification towards acceptance into Dental Hygiene School. Dental Assistants also become office managers, dental assisting instructors or dental product sales reps.
