    Hey everybody:

    I am going to be taking a gap year and I would like to find a Dental Assistant position during that time. Can anybody offer some advice on how to find a position like this? Should I cold call some offices, or just drop by with my resume?

    If anybody has been successful in finding a Dental Assistant position, let me know how you did it! Any advice would be awesome.

      Good question. I actually have been searching for Lab Tech jobs etc (I will have a BS in Bio) but I am not having too much luck. And to be honest, I am not too fond of labwork. I would probably be happier learning about dentistry.

        So much for a marketable degree. You would be better off working at McD; learning about dentistry is what ds are all about.
