    Hey guys,

    So my cousin is going to dental school and she wants to work as a dental assistant to gain experiences. She's asked around and most of the dentists only take those who are certified. So we're trying to register for the exam. Also, we were wondering if she has to take any required course in order to take the test, or she can just buy the book to self study and then go take it? If so, is there any books that you can recommend? :)

    Thank you very much !:cool::cool:

    Alot of times it depends on what state your in as to DA certification; here in AL, it's not required & most dentists will hire you for on-the-job training if they're looking for a DA; have her to look & ask around if there are any "free clinics" (for homeless, low income, ect.) that do dentistry at which she can volunteer & get the experience, as well as more contacts with dentists who are volunteering their time at the clinic; will look good on her dental school application & maybe snag her a paying job.
