Who We Are
We are a training institution for Dental Assistants. We help to train the Dental Assistants of tomorrow. We strive to give students the hands-on experience with real state-of-the-art equipment, rather than using vintage and outdated materials in a vocational classroom. Our courses are taught on Saturdays, which will allow you to continue working throughout the week while you train for your new career as a Dental Assistant.
Who You Are
Whether you are a recent High School graduate or GED recipient, a college graduate in the need of employment, employed at a dead-end job that is unfulfilling, or a willing individual looking for a new career where you can help others, Dental Assisting may be a great career opportunity for you!
What is a Dental Assistant?
A Dental Assistant is a support staffer who helps the dentist with a variety of patient care and treatment tasks. Their duties include explaining procedures to patients, instructing patients in oral care, sterilizing instruments, preparing instrument trays, providing chair side assistance during dental restorative procedures, ordering dental supplies, and maintaining treatment records and patient histories. Dental Assistants may perform additional duties, such as applying temporary dental crowns, making tooth impressions and processing x-rays.
