Almost all private dental practices work a traditional daytime schedule. In addition, the large majority of dental practices get their full time hours in 4 days per week. Therefore, most dental assistants have an extra day off each week. Corporate dental chains do offer longer hours, days and evenings.
Most dentists are unwilling to hire and train someone who has no previous dental training or experience. Therefore, your best option is to find a good dental assisting training program. However, most dental assisting programs are too long and too expensive. Many lasting 6, 12, or 18 months, costing $12,000-$20,000.
