What is a traveling Dental Assistant? It’s a certified Dental Assistant who is willing to travel either to other cities or different states and work temporarily within a Dental office. Typically, a short staffed dental office will contact a dental assistant agency, and then provide you with an assignment based on your criteria.
If you like to travel, this program gives you the flexibility to work while also giving you the chance to explore new areas around the country. This allows you to visit new cities, explore new cultures and try new activities.
There is no standard length of the assignment. A travel Dental Assistant has the freedom to select new jobs, work in different offices, and with many specialists.
There is a lot of beauty in being a traveling Dental Assistant – meeting new people you’d work with and gaining new skills.
If traveling 30 miles from your home, you may also qualify for housing and traveling costs. If you are planning to work outside the state you’re certified in, you’ll have to have the required certifications of the state you plan on working in.
If you lack experience and wish to become a traveling Dental Assistant, you can enroll in a Dental Assistant Program to acquire the necessary certifications like X-Ray and Coronal Polishing. Both certifications are highly desirable for a traveling Dental Assistant.
The more flexible you are, the easier it is to land a traveling Dental Assistant position.
