Boca Raton, Florida (CNN) You don’t need to have dental training to start working as a dentist in Midlothian, Alabama.
You don.t even need a license to practice dentistry in that community.
But that’s what some people do.
And for good reason.
A report from CNN affiliate WFAA shows that while most dentists in the state aren’t licensed or required to have medical training, they do have some special privileges that can help them better serve patients.
Dentists are required to undergo annual training on their state’s dental health and dental standards, which includes how to treat patients.
And, according to WFARAA, they are required by law to report the results of all dental work to the state.
The state also offers a range of benefits for dentists, including job training, paid vacation, access to health insurance and a dental clinic.
Some residents in Midlanders are already making the leap from dental school to dentistry, and it’s an attractive option for some, like dentist bona della Pompidou, who moved to the Midland area in 2014 to open her own practice.
She’s had to make some adjustments, though.
Bona de la Pompids first needed to change the state of the license plates of her office because the county where she currently practices is a different county from where she’s in Midlander.
The state required her to have her license plates change before they could change the license numbers, so she now has her own license plate number.
Bona de La Pompida is a certified dentist and was previously licensed to practice in Alabama, Georgia, Louisiana and Mississippi.
She is a member of the American Dental Association’s Dental Practice Standards and has experience working in the community.
Bora de la Puce also is a registered nurse, a credential that helps ensure that she can keep up with the latest dental advancements.
She was previously certified to work in the area and has the required nursing license.
“I’ve always had a very good relationship with the people that work here, the people who are here to help us, the community,” she said.
“I think that’s something that will be a very positive thing for me and hopefully, as a dental practice, that it will be something that brings people together.”
For some, it’s a way to start a career.
The first dentists who began practicing in Midlands are from Louisiana, but other states and countries also have started opening up their own clinics and hospitals.
In some cases, it means opening their practice to new people who can’t come here.
But some dentists like Bona De la Puce believe that they are providing dental care that is better for the community than in other parts of the country.
“The fact that we’re not being paid as much in the United States is one of the things that really gives us some peace of mind,” she explained.
“Because you’re not working in a state of poverty, and you don’t have to worry about paying taxes or having to worry with other people in your community.
You can focus on your patients.”
It’s not just dentists that have begun to practice Midland, either.
There are a variety of dental schools in Midlties, including a dental school at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette and a school in the University at Albany.
The university also has an undergraduate dental program.
There are also a number of other private dental schools that have opened in Midlcys, including one in New Orleans that’s set to open this fall.
