Career Change to Dental Assistant in Wisconsin
Many Americans are dissatisfied with their job but are worried about finding a job with no degree, taking a pay cut if they change careers, or about not being able to find a new job at all. When all your experience is in one field, the idea of a career change can be very intimidating. With our 10 Saturday dental assistant programs near Green Bay, you can keep working full time while you learn all the skills you need to get a job at a dentist, orthodontist, oral surgeon, or other dental office.
At our Wisconsin Dental Assistant School, we often see CNAs (Certified Nursing Assistants) who love helping people but find their job too stressful or physically demanding. They become burned out. The transition from CNA to Dental Assistant allows you to continue using your CNA job skills, working in the medical field, seeing patients, and helping people stay healthy without all the physical, mental, and emotional stress.
If you find yourself thinking “I want a career change” or “I NEED a career change,” apply now to start your dental assistant training.
