California Dental Technician Schools.

How good is the job outlook for graduates of dental technician schools in California? According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, a 36% increase of job openings is expected by the year 2018. Dental technicians work alongside dentists. They may assist them while they're working - a practice called chair side assistance - or they may manage patient records. Dental technicians include dental assistants, dental hygienists, dental office managers, and dental billing specialists. For those that work directly with the patients, knowledge of the anatomy of the mouth, jaw, and teeth is essential. Other subjects included in their education might include record keeping, dental terminology, and dental procedures.
