North-West College is proud to be recognized as one of the finest Dental Assisting Schools in California. We’ve specialized in helping people become a Dental Assistant for over 40 years.
As a Dental Assistant, you will prepare patients to see the dentist, assist the dentist at chairside during patient care, and care for the treatment room and instruments, including all infection control procedures. You will be taking and processing dental x-rays, performing basic laboratory procedures and providing patient education.
Most graduates of our Dental Assistant school program currently serve the profession in private dental offices. These offices are staffed by both general practitioners and specialists in the dental profession. Other dental assistants are employed by the rapidly growing group-practice systems. In the group-practice settings, several general practice dentists or specialists join and share many assistants and front office/business support staff. Federal agencies, including clinics and hospitals of the Veteran’s Administration and the U.S. Public Health Service, also employ Dental Assistants.
