Q: What do you wish you knew about your job when you first started out?

Certified Dental Assistant (CDA) in Vancouver:
"No retirement future."
Although I have always enjoyed the technical aspect of being a CDA, it took me a few years to discover it is a thankless position. CDA's are considered the lowest position in the office and are often treated as such. Working in a dental office is working for a small business & offers little chance for advancement and no financial retirement options. Go into nursing instead!!
