Dental Assisting Training at Virginia College

Dental Assistant Program

Our Dental Assistant diploma program can provide you with the relevant training, knowledge and skills you'll need to assist dentists with patient care. The program is designed to help graduates become well-rounded members of the dental team — in the exam room and at the receptionist desk.

The duties of a dental assistant are diverse, designed to support the dentist and include performing a range of daily activities such as:

  • Caring for patients in the treatment room
  • Taking impressions of patients' teeth
  • Demonstrating preventive dentistry to patients
  • Assisting with oral surgery
  • Performing oral evacuations
  • Infection control and sterilization

Dental assistants often perform administrative duties to help maintain an efficient, productive dental office. Your training will include classes in dental office procedures such as taking inventory, managing patient records and communicating verbally and through written correspondence.
