What an Interviewer Looks for in a Dental Assistant

Posted on: August 15, 2011

Once you complete your Dental Assistant education and start looking for a job, what will interviewers expect from you? Here are some key points to remember:

  • Punctuality.  First of all, show up to your interview on time. Make your first impression one of dependability.
  • Appearance. Your second impression should be one of professionalism. Your hair should be cut and styled. Wear clean, pressed clothes. If you’re a woman, keep makeup and jewelry to a minimum. Try to cover up tattoos, if you have them.
  • Knowledge/Experience. This is where your Everest education can help you. Discuss not only what you’ve learned in class, but what you’ve actually done in the lab. Convince them you have the skills to do the job.
  • Confidence. Again, this is where your Everest education helps. Your education and training can provide you with the self-confidence interviewers are looking for.
