Your British credentials will not be recognized by any of the States but one does not need any special qualifications to work in a dentist office. However, to be able to perform certain procedures, many States require that you past their examination to prove your qualifications.

You have to take a test to verify that you know the job well. I believe you can be a dental hygienist without a certification, but to do fillings, and other dental work, you may have to be certified DDS. It depends on the state, but most require you to be certified to do more than just clean teeth.
