"Dental Administrative Training."
Software, terminology, and overall health care regulations....all are easy, however, you don't go into this position w/o specific training. Trade schools today offer minimal courses in real-life applications of working with up-to-date methods and technology. Would enjoy to see these schools improve their offers to students interested in these types of positions.
