Dental Assistant

The Transition to the Dental Industry

Obviously, working in guest relations in the hospitality industry is different from working in a dental practice. For Michelly, the transition began almost right away.

She tried out a Dental Assistant course in Western Australia Institute of Further Studies. Halfway through the course, she got a job at a big dental practice where she worked as a sterilisation assistant. Just a few months later, the same dental office required a nurse, a position which she trained for later on.
