Billings Academy Of Dental Assisting Recognized Need In Community 5 Years Ago

This program isnt for our benefit, Hilling said. Its strictly a training program so the graduates can go work in another office. Much of the demand for dental assistants is being pushed by the growing wave of senior citizens, who are living longer and taking better care of their natural teeth. By the year 2025, nearly one in four Montanans will have surpassed the age of 65, jumping from about 100,000 senior citizens now to 240,000. In fact, Montana is already projected to rank fourth in the nation in percentage of seniors by 2015. In 2010, there were 297,200 dental assistants employed in the United States.
