The program includes preparation for the Dental Assisting National Board Radiation Health and Safety Exam, the Dental Assisting National Board Arizona Coronal Polish Exam, American Heart Association CPR Certification, Externship Site Placement, Job Placement Assistance and Dentrix Software Training.
*Note: The only difference in the curriculum between the Dental Assistant Program and the Dental Assistant Program with Externship is a required 160 hour externship. Students enrolled in either program attend the same 3 month course, the Dental Assistant Program ends after the 3 months of class and the Dental Assistant Program with Externship students continue on to a 160 hour externship at a local dental office.
After completion of the program graduates are qualified to work in any dental office as a front or back office assistant including all specialties, such as Orthodontics, Oral Surgery, Endodontics, Periodontics, and Pediatrics. There are no additional educational requirements to work as a specialty assistant, however more extensive training in Orthodontics is highly desirable. Our students are thoroughly prepared in all aspects of dentistry.
