Dental Assisting

The Dental Assisting program will help students to develop satisfactory dental assisting skills and demonstrate competence in a variety of dental office procedures and laboratory techniques. The procedures and lab techniques include: preliminary examination procedure, assisting chair side using fourhanded dentistry, charting, appointment scheduling, keeping patients records and sterilizing instruments. Graduates will be qualified to assume entry-level positions as a dental assistant in dental offices and clinics performing the lab techniques and office procedures described above.

Why a Dental Assisting Program?

Dental assisting is different from the duties of a dental hygienist in that the assistant often works side-by-side with the dentist. As such, dental assistants perform many basic but important duties.

This includes:

  • Sterilization and handling of equipment.
  • Comforting patients.
  • Keeping the mouth clean.
  • Making impressions of teeth.
  • Obtaining and developing x-rays.
  • Performing front desk duties.
