When you are licened to be a dental hygienist are you also certified to be a dental assistant?
I'm planning on being a dental hygienist but I'm going to be 21 when I graduate from college. Im scared they will not hire me as a dental hygienist being so young, even though Ill be licened. I wanted to know if I'll be certified to be an assistant as well so they could hire me as an assistant and i could work my way up to a hygienist when there is a job opening.

You won't want to work your way up. You will be a dental hygienist and should find an office that needs one. Hygienists get paid about twice as much--you are trained and deserve to be paid as such.
