Dental Assisting is a career that can take a physical toll on your body if not in the right shape. DOT’s 12-week dental assisting course teaches students  that chair positioning and the right shoes are imperative for success in the industry. Aside from general office practical knowledge, we encourage leading a healthy and active lifestyle. Dental assistants are constantly on the move, so it’s important to take precautions for your overall health. Staying active and eating right ensure that you’re in the best shape possible to take on the day.

Get outside, get active, explore nature at Indiana’s Eagle Creek Park.

Nurture Your Mental Health by Going to a Park

Dental Assisting, as any other career can be stressful at times. It’s important to take care of your mental health. If you are feeling overwhelmed, try changing up the scenery and taking a breather. Parks are a great way to unwind and take your mind off of things – lay out at the pool or have a picnic by the reservoir to clear your mind.
