Intra Oral Dental Assistant Careers

Are you interested in health care and health sciences? Obsessed with flossing? Dental training programs at the National Academy of Health and Business may be your ticket to rewarding Intra Oral Dental Assistant careers.

Intra oral dental assistants (also known as Level 1 & 2) assist dentists during the examination and treatment of patients and perform both clinical and administrative functions in general/family and cosmetic dentistry offices. Dental assistants generally work in a well-lit, clean environment and usually put in 35- to 40-hour workweeks.

With populations continuously growing, increased preventative dental care and greater retention of natural teeth by older people, employment in this sector is expected to grow 36 percent in the next decade. This is projected to be among the fastest growing occupations in that period. As well, these increased workloads for dentists are not expected to decrease, ensuring that there will be a high demand for dental assistants for years to come.
