Earn Your High School Diploma While Preparing For a Healthcare Career
Students have the opportunity to earn their High School diploma while also studying in one of our healthcare programs. This is done through our Ability to Benefit (ATB) program. It’s a great way to earn your degree while also preparing for a medical position.
The Arizona College Ability-to-Benefit program is available in 4 of our healthcare programs: Medical Assistant with Phlebotomy, Dental Assistant, Massage Therapy, and Medical Billing & Coding. The Ability to Benefit program is not available for the Healthcare Administration or Pharmacy Technician programs.
Dental assistants aid the dentist in the examination and treatment of patients. Their duties include taking and developing x-rays, assisting in the operatory (four-handed dentistry), construction and preparation of temporary crowns and bridges. The dental assistant is also involved in the efficient operation of the dental practice. Insurance, patient relations, billing and the greeting of patients are some of the duties performed by the dental assistant.
In less than 10 months, students can complete the dental assistant program at Arizona College and begin a professional healthcare career. Every part of our dental curriculum is designed to give you the specific skills and hands-on experience needed to succeed as a dental assistant. Our students also complete an 8-week clinical externship where they will work in a real dental practice.
