    So I just got hired as a dental assistant for my gap year. Should I contact some of the schools to update my application? Has anyone done anything like this?

    as many suggest, save this for your interview.

    Side question: do you have any prior assistant experience or x-ray certification that get you hired?

    Nope, somehow managed to charm them enough to hire me without any experiences (except shadowing). Dr said hes gonna train me, so I guess I lucked out :)

    yea i just got hired as a uncertified dental assistant too but I did assist during my shadowing (no shadow just assisting that counts for shadowing) but she told me to take the xray course and will train me :)
