Often dental assistants move to management positions in their practice as their career moves along. While dental assisting is a great career many assistants have shown that they are taking on new management type roles in their offices. Also some assistants see management positions as the next step in their careers. And while this can be a great opportunity for assistants, it is important to continue your education.
With moving from a dental assistant position to management there can be a variety of new duties that you could be responsible for. These can include, but are not limited to: interpret financial reports, communicate pertinent information to all members of the practice effectively, handle accounts receivable and accounts payable, etc.
