Hello everyone. My wife & I will be moving to the Northern Mississippi suburbs of Memphis early next year. I will have a job in place, but I was wondering about a dental assisting job in North Mississippi for my wife. She has been in the field now 4 years, but is not registered. But has all California requirements like radiation license. If anyone on here can help us find her a job, that would be wonderful. Can she work in North Mississippi or Memphis, with these requirements? We have heard that in order for her to work in Memphis, she would need to take the TN test to be registered (which is real expensive). Is this true? What about North Mississippi? Thank you in advance for all responces.

I'm not trying to be at all sarcastic, but unless there happen to be a lot of unlicensed Dental hygenists on this forum, I don't think anyone would likely know that.

How about looking up dentists in the Y pages and calling them to ask? They might also know someone who is looking for one.

These will both be helpful to your wife. American Dental Association (for accredited programs & exam info by state):

ADA.org: Dental Assisting, Hygiene and Lab Technology Programs - U.S. (http://www.ada.org/prof/ed/programs/search_dahlt_us.asp - broken link)

There are 3 schools in MS who offer the only accredited Dental Assisting programs in that state, which she can call prior to moving, to have her bases covered.

US Dept. of Labor, Bureau of Labor Stats. Best info Re: Assisting:
Dental assistants

Best of luck...

All of you people that wanna be rude just don't even answer! And if you are gonna answer know what you read before doing so.... Just saying! As far as dental ASSISTING goes the board now doesn't make you text nor go to school to be reg! All you have to do is apply! As far as being cert in radiology there is a weekend course you can take but if you have the cert to take xrays in Cali you could probably just get them transferred to TN! I would call the tenn board to get an application and start the process it's not hard at all! Hope this helped you out! I also know an ortho office needing help always so let me know if still intetested
