Jobs and keeping your dreads
Yes I was a DDS assistant many years ago, endo and loved the surgery part of endo. Then I worked also up front and then manager of a DDS office.In that field in one way or another for 13 years. I took ten years off to go into real estate. Which as we all know bombed out, me with it. Soooo I decided to get back into the DDS field in one way or another. I have been applying for either the front end, which I know very well or assistant to an oral surgeon, which I would have to be trained. I did not go after general DDS or ortho assistant. Here in Michigan every job available has a high turn out of apps. DDS is the same. I was worried about being on the older side and top that off with my dreads. It took me about a month to get this job. I interviewed with 11 possible positions, turning down one that offered me a job, due to location. Out of the rest, I would say that I would only accept about 3 DDS positions if I was offered the job. I pretty much interview them as they do me and I am picky when it comes to where I work.
DDS assistant is always a good field to fall back on. I have always like it.
OH!! The tiramisu did turn out good. My fellow workers all like it, at the sporting good store. The DDS office ask me if I was going to bring in cookies...so I am looking for a great cookie recipe for my first day of work there..
peace and enjoy your evening
