I have not really had the opportunity to gain much experience because I only finished dental school in my native India in April of 2015. That following month, I was engaged; and moved to the US in July of 2016. I took my NBDE Part 1in December of 2016 and while I was waiting for my results I worked at a dentists' office close to home for one full month as a surgical assistant.
