Hi there! It truly depends on the type of office you work for. For Pediatric dentistry- Some Private offices are flexible with schedules (since kids usually have school and can only be scheduled after 2/3pm, you may possibly encounter yourself with working a 12-5:30 schedule or spring break/summer working 9-5:30s. It depends on the time of the year. I would definitely recommend being firm on letting an office know your set schedule as well! It all depends on the position being offered and time of the year.

I hated when my favorites assistant took vacation but I also wanted her to be happy. Every office is different. She was able to schedule time off when wanted. Some offices can make it difficult to get time off for the assistants. I'd say most offices make it mildly difficult to take time off.

Hello there!
You will find multiple options. You can definitely find a flexible schedule if that is what you are looking for, but you can also fill 40hrs per week.
There are several offices that work only 3 or 4 days per week. Some of them start at 7am and you will finish early , or start at 9am and finish around 6pm. It varies a lot.
You can also found temp agencies where you can set up those days and time that you are available to work in your best convenience.

That would depend if the office is offering for a part time or full time schedule. You can also just be available to do temp positions which is more flexible. You can choose when you want to work depend on when an office may just need a temp.
