What nik said. My teacher's license had expired so I had to get it renewed in my current state. Is there a similar process for you dental certificate?
I have no family in the area either and found cheap daycare through my son's school, babysitters through the same, and I started reaching out to a couple of neighbors for help.
I initially had to take a job I was waaaaaay overqualified for (teacher's aid) but it got my foot in the door and I ended up with a teaching position in the middle of the school year.
You can do this, hurtz. Tackle one thing at a time.
