Dental Assisting Allows You To Live a Balanced Lifestyle
It’s not a secret that living a balanced lifestyle leads to a happy life. Dental assisting provides great, flexible hours that in turn allows you to accomplish all of your own personal goals! Here are some tips on how to make sure you’re maximizing your time so you can accomplish your goals, and still have time for work, family, and friends!
1. Time Management
The key to getting started is time management. Sticking to a schedule can sometimes be challenging, but let’s face it you’re a go-getter and have goals and dreams you want to accomplish outside the workplace! Start out small, try adding one activity that you enjoy at a time. Integrate the activities at a reasonable pace – changing your entire routine all at once can be overwhelming and might result in abandonment altogether.
2. Make a Schedule/List
Making a list may sound cliché, but it helps. Write down how to get what you want, not just what you want. Make a reasonable schedule for yourself to stay on track and accomplish your goals. In our 12-week dental assisting program we teach you about the software that creates the day-to-day schedule in a dental office.
3. Make Time for You, Friends, and Family!
Dental offices typically aren’t open on weekends, which allows you to make time for enough free time. Friends, family, relaxing, it’s all important for your mental and physical health. Allow time for your brain to turn “off” so you can unwind.
4. Get Enough Sleep
Dental office’s will keep you on your toes! Some days can be very busy and require you to be on your feet most of the time. You’ll need a good night’s rest behind you if you want to be a successful dental assistant, and be successful in our EFDA or assisting program.
Our dental assisting programs run 12 weeks, Monday – Wednesday (9am-3pm), a great schedule that provides time for the other important things in your life and gets you used to a typical day in a dental office.
