Carol Walsh — A dental assistant you should know

I wasn't sure what I wanted to do after high school. Due to cost, college was not an option at the time. I was living in Florida when I received a pamphlet from a non-accredited vocational school for dental assisting in Atlanta. It made me think that dental assisting might be a great career so I applied and off I went. I started out as a chairside assistant, but now I am in office management.
