Dental Assistant

If you are a "hands-on" person, enjoy people, like fast-paced work, like variety, and enjoy the thought of helping people; then Dental Assisting might be for you. Dental Assistants help a Dentist work on patients in a dental office or clinic. They take dental x-rays, make study models, help with dental procedures, do coronal polishes, apply sealants, and maintain infection control of dental operatory, instruments, and equipment. They calm patient's fears, maintain patient's dental records, make appointments, answer the telephone, and help with patient oral healthcare education. This particular program provides Dental Assistants with additional training to become skilled in radiological procedures.
