Dental Assisting Degree

The objective of the Dental Assistant* program is to train students to become an essential part of the dental team. Our comprehensive communication-based approach in the student's training will add to the ever-growing need for high-quality, personable dental professionals. The Dental Assistant is responsible for assisting the dentist with a variety of procedures including, but not limited to, preliminary examinations, performing four-handed and six-handed dentistry, sterilization and infection control, patient comfort, maintaining inventory, pouring of models, and fabricating custom trays such as mouth guards, bleach trays and retainers. The Dental Assistant may also perform additional administrative duties such as charting, appointment scheduling, maintaining patient records and recare management. Under the direct supervision of a licensed dentist, the assistant may perform time-saving duties such as alginate impressions, dental X-rays, application of topical anesthetic and fluoride, patient education, and assisting the doctor with procedures ranging from dental restorations to surgical procedures. Upon satisfactory completion of the training, students will be qualified to assume entry-level positions as a Dental Assistant in a general dental office, clinic or specialty practice performing chairside duties, lab procedures, administrative skills, inventory control, infection monitoring and instrument sterilization.
