Do you think being a dental assistant is a good job?
I am just out of high school. I should be getting accepted into the dental assistant program by fall 2010. Entry salary is 25,000 to 30,000 a year. I am an average student, receive no financial aid because my parents "make too much", and this is the only program in my area that doesn't have a 3 or 4 year waitlist. Is this a good paying job?
