Duties of a dental assistant are among the most comprehensive and varied in the dental office. Dental assistants perform a variety of patient care, office, and laboratory duties. These tasks require both interpersonal and technical skills. Students will learn to work chair-side as dentists examine and treat patients. Some specific tasks dental assistants may perform include: assisting the dentist during a variety of treatment procedures, taking and developing dental radiographs (x-rays), asking about the patient's medical history and taking blood pressure, serving as an infection control officer, developing infection control protocol, preparing and sterilizing instruments and equipment, help patients feel comfortable before, during and after treatments, teaching patients appropriate oral hygiene to maintain oral health, taking impressions of patients' teeth for study casts (models of teeth), performing office management tasks that often require the use of a PC, communicating with patients and suppliers, assisting with and helping to provide direct patient care in all dental specialties, including orthodontics, pediatric dentistry, periodontics and oral surgery. Our program will prepare students for a rewarding career as a dental assistant. Students will learn all necessary skills for their career, including preparing their own resume, and how to interview successfully and maintain jobs as dental assistants.
