Begin Your Dental Assistant career in less than 1 year!

The Dental Assistant plays a critical role in the dental office, fulfilling many administrative, patient service, and chair-side tasks for their supervising dentist. The responsibilities of a Dental Assistant may vary between dental practices but typically includes preparing patients for procedures and treatments, handling dental instruments, processing x-rays, completing lab tests, maintaining dental records, and most importantly, assisting the dentist in various patient treatments.

Dental Assistants get to make a huge impact every day by helping others improve their smile and overall dental health. There are few things that play such a huge role in our social nature than that of our smiles. Big ones, little ones, young ones and old ones, smiles are a major part of who we are and having a healthy, beautiful smile can make you feel good inside and out.
