Dental Assistants are needed in Aspen practices all across the U.S. Full and part-time jobs are available. And the opportunities don’t stop once you join the Aspen team. In fact, many Aspen Dental Assistants quickly advance to one of the following positions:
Dental Hygienist: If patient care is your passion, dental assistants can increase their responsibility and income potential by attending school to become a dental hygienist and eventually a manager of hygiene services.
Lab Support Technician: If you love working with your hands, dental assistants can receive training to become lab technicians. In this role, you’ll work at one of our practices or our central laboratory handcrafting high-quality dentures.
