Dental Assistant Job Outlook

Employment of dental assistants is expected to increase by 31 percent from 2010 to 2020, making the Dental Assistant Job Outlook much better than the average for all occupations. Ongoing research linking oral health and general health will likely continue to increase the demand for preventive dental services. Dentists will continue to hire more dental assistants to complete routine tasks, allowing the dentist to see more patients in their practice and spend their time on more complex procedures. As dental practices grow, more dental assistants will be needed

The aging population in the U.S. will provide a further boost to the Dental Assistant Job Outlook. As the large baby-boom population ages, and as people keep more of their original teeth than did previous generations, the need to maintain and treat teeth will continue to increase the need for dental assistants.
