Dental offices are attracted to TSTC graduates’ experience. More than 60 percent of your class time is spent on actual hands-on work in lab settings.
Employment is expected to grow 25 percent through 2022, which is much faster than the average for all occupations. In fact, dental assistants are expected to be among the fastest growing occupations over the projection period.
Population growth, greater retention of natural teeth by middle-aged and older people, and an increased focus on preventative dental care for younger generations will fuel demand for dental services.
