Employment prospects for Dental Business Assistants are projected to remain strong over the next five years due to an increasing population, shortage of dental staff to meet the demand for dental care, and retirements. In addition, improvements in technology and a greater proportion of people with dental insurance have made dental services more accessible, and consequently, more people are seeking out these services.
