Dental assistants are essential team members in the dental office. Working closely with the dentist, hygienist and administrative staff, dental assistants use their skills to deliver quality oral health care to diverse patient populations and to increase the efficiency of the office. Our dental lab is fully equipped to offer a valuable hands-on experience that prepares our students for real-world dental office technology, such as digital dental radiology.
This is a limited entry program. Contact Health Sciences at email@example.com for more information.
