According to U.S News & World Report, dental assisting is ranked among the top 25 best health care support jobs in the United States, based on factors such as median salary, future job prospects, and more. Dental assisting is a career that’s in high demand and is expected to grow over the next decade. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), “employment of dental assistants is projected to grow 11 percent from 2020 to 2030, much faster than the average for all occupations. Ongoing research linking oral health and general health will continue to increase the demand for preventive dental services. About 44,000 openings for dental assistants are projected each year, on average, over the decade. Many of those openings are expected to result from the need to replace workers who transfer to different occupations or exit the labor force, such as to retire. As dental practices grow, more dental assistants will be needed.”
