Dental Billing Schools
There are quite a few different types of dental training available depending on what sort of role interests you.
You could become a dental hygienist. You would offer health checks and cleaning services and information on oral hygiene.
You may be interested in becoming a dental nurse. This involves helping the dentist directly. You may prepare amalgam, clean and sterilize instruments, use suction equipment, or make up materials used for casting. Part of your role might include calming anxious patients or distracting children to help them through procedures.
Other important dental training roles include dental practice administration. The emphasis of your work would involve coding and billing, record filing, making appointments (face to face and on the telephone) receiving supplies, liaising with insurance companies, and greeting patients.
Most dental training is vocational. In other words you would be trained for a specific job. It should be fairly easy to transfer between similar occupations with a little extra training for example dental hygienist to dental nurse, or dental coder to dental office administrator.
Positions are available in dental practices, or within large hospitals where there is a dental department. Opportunities may arise within insurance companies looking for trained personnel. Another type of role that might appeal to you is with a dental supplies company working as a sales representative. This type of work would concentrate more on product promotion, business development, and sales. Both dentists and sales companies generally appreciate sales representatives with a sound understanding of the industry and first hand experience within dentistry.
