The goal of the Dental Assistant program is to provide graduates with the skills and knowledge that will enable them to qualify for entry-level positions as dental assistants.
Since they are trained in clinical and radiographic procedures, their services are also sought by general dentists, and dental office facilities specializing in pediatrics, orthodontics, endodontics and other specialties, dental schools, dental supply manufacturers, hospital dental departments, dental laboratories and dental insurance companies.
The objective of the Dental Assistant program is to provide the student with the appropriate didactic theory and hands-on skills required and necessary to prepare them for entry-level positions as dental assistants in today’s modern health and dental care offices, dental clinics, and facilities. Students will study diagnostic and procedural terminology as it relates to the accurate completion of dental examinations, procedures, and daily tasks.
The combination of introduced skills taught in this program, will prepare students for the ever-changing field of dentistry and orthodontics. Students study dental radiography, dental sciences, operatory dentistry, laboratory procedures, dental anatomy and orthodontics, and dental health. Completion of the Dental Assistant program, including the classroom training and externship, is acknowledged by the awarding of a diploma.
Note: The Dental Assistant program is approved by the Dental Board of California. Upon successful completion of the program, students will be able to sit for the Registered Dental Assistant examination provided by the Dental Board of California.
