Aroostook leading the charge in addressing state shortage of dental assistants


PRESQUE ISLE, Maine — Aroostook County is facing a critical shortage of qualified dental assistants.

That is why a nonprofit Aroostook dental clinic is partnering with local adult education programs and a Maine dental training business to create the first adult education-based dental assistant program in the state.

Prior to COVID-19, Aroostook dentists had access to a small but reliable group of trained dental assistants and largely avoided a widespread shortage.
