I will be moving to NC in July and to practice there, I need to take the CITA exam. However, since I couldn't be in NC in June, I will be taking the CITA in Mississippi in August and am not sure how to screen the patients. Questions: 1. How difficult is the exam ? 2. a. How do I go about finding patients in a state where I don't live nor have any contacts. b. Is there any service to find patients for CITA in Mississippi ? 3. How do we go about finding dental assistants ? If any one has a clue how to go about this, please please reply to me or to this thread. I would really appreciate it.
