I started as an assistant back in 2003. Whenever it got slow I went up to the front desk to help out. Eventually I ended up at the front desk, however, when they needed me in the back, off I went to take an FMX or impressions. I understand what you are saying about the cap on pay. I had to demand a raise because of the work I did for the office. Maybe you should look into working at a specialist's office. Perio/ Endo / O.S. or something like that. The fact that you are bilingual should be a plus.
If you want more, definitely pray about going to school because you are never too old to get more knowledge. By the way, if you speak the way you type I see no barrier!!
Many blessings will come your way. You have overcome an illness and got back into the swing of working! Never feel hopeless. If your cup if full maybe it's time to get a new one!!! Have faith. It will be fine!!!

Ur their to work i wouldnt allow anyone to make me feel that way. At times u draw a line. Ur their to make that paycheck by doing ur job and doing ur job 100 %. Ignore and stick to urself. Learn the business run it and wen u do let the dr kno y ur disconnected ask for a raise and a promotion if u get it fine be u run that office. I kno its nice to work in an environment that is happy but the dr needs to weed out the rotted roots and u can help do just that. Be a leader do not follower u can take that office over with ur work supercede everyone and make it a point to learn and run it all be everywhere and do everything. U will be indispensable.

From the standpoint of someone with 20+ years of experience and a 2 year gap because of a chronic condition, I can empathize with you! I am currently trying to re-enter the workforce and it is incredibly hard.
I believe one influencing factor that you didn’t mention is how long have been back to work? That can make a huge difference in what direction you should take. It’s important that you establish some longevity before you begin looking for another practice, since you want to show that you are able to work consistently, even with your condition, and you need to re-establish a reference base.
If school is an option, and you have the time to dedicate to your studies, then I would pursue that absolutely. Furthering your education is not only a way to increase earning potential, it is great for your own personal growth.
Perhaps instead of pursuing the specialty training, look into business administration courses and pursue a position as a practice manager to increase your income potential. Those courses can also lend themselves well to a general office environment, which opens up opportunity outside of the dental field.
Very best of luck to you!
