Why is it helpful to be certified as a Dental Assistant?
Again, while not required by every employer, certification is a great way to stand apart from the competition. It emphasizes that you have clearly mastered the skills you need to thrive as a Dental Assistant and shows employers you are serious about performing the job well. Certified Dental Assistants may also enjoy higher compensation than their non-certified counterparts.
