Dental Assistants work directly with the patient and dentist in chair-side procedures and perform dental office administrative duties. Apollo College Dental Assisting program will prepare the student to work as a Dental Assistant, Front Office Receptionist, or Dental Office Manager in governmental agencies, private dental practices, and hospitals that include dental health care. The program gives the student a complete education in the clinical, laboratory, and administrative duties of a Dental Assistant. The student will learn about oral hygiene, the charting and instrumentation procedures involved with chair-side assisting to the Dentist, terminology, office procedures and office techniques, insurance forms, and laboratory procedures. Upon graduation from the program, state x-ray certification is strongly recommended for Dental Assistants working with a dentist in chair-side procedures. In most states, testing is administrated by the state in a separate facility. Upon completion of all classroom instruction and skills training, students perform learned skills during a 240-hour externship in a Dentist's office, dental clinic, or other approved dental care facility.
