Does becoming a dental assistant really require a certificate?
I livin New Hampshire, and am aspiring one day to move to North Carolina. I was speaking with a friend who will be going to school for dental hygeine, and said you really don't even need a degree or anything for dental assistant. They do training on the job?
But, I was thinking even if that is the case, schooling in it would make better sense because I have that much more knowledge to get the job over someone else... and with moving and all...
I also know there are a lot of ways to advance with dental assisting, like x-ray, mouldings etc.

any info?
