Job Opportunities

Dental Assisting Students

Job prospects for Dental Assisting are excellent as Dentists are expected to hire more assistants to perform routine tasks so that they may devote their own time to more complex procedures. See the US Bureau of Labor Statistics for more information about this exciting career choice, including expected median salary and job trends.

Transferring to a Two-Year or a Four-Year College

Students who complete a certificate program in Dental Assisting may choose to directly enter the workforce or they may transfer into either a two-year or a four-year program for Dental Hygiene. (Some Dental Hygiene programs are two-year and some are four-year.)

Associate Degree graduates may also benefit from the Joint Admissions Program available among participating public higher education programs in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.

Please contact the Academic Advising Department for further information. Students may also refer to the Transfer Programs and Events page.
