When I was growing up, I always wanted to be a doctor. However, after volunteering at the hospital for a few weeks, I could tell that cleaning up vomit and dealing with death wasn't really something that I wanted to do for the rest of my life. I decided to give the dental field a try, and so I enrolled in a few dental assisting classes at my local community college. I absolutely loved learning about the subject, and when we started working in real clinics, I knew that I was in the right place. As you go through the dental articles on my website, I hope that you can decide whether working in the dental field is right for you.
