A Day in the Life of a Dental Assistant with Salud:

Let’s face it: Dental Assistants do a lot over the course of a workday. For example, you prepare the treatment room; you maintain the schedule and ensure the team is sticking to it; you interact with patients before, during and after procedures; and you assist the dentist chairside. And these are just some of the many duties on your plate.

Previous dental assistant experience desired, but not required.

Bilingual English/Spanish is preferred.
