I have been a part time dental assistant for seven years. I'm moving to a new town (with a dental school) so until my acceptance I'd like to assist. I probably won't matriculate until fall of '08. Have any of you had any luck with getting assisting or dental lab tech jobs? Do you tell the dentist of your plans? The problem is that I'm going to grad school at this university, so I'm asking for part time positions. I'm wondering if they'll know i'm interested in dentistry with my all of my experience (and a degree in bio) and won't even give me a chance. Do I lie? I have an interview friday. What have you all done?
