The Dental Assistant Program will cover key areas and topics exposing the student to both classroom and hands-on instruction. The classroom instruction reviews the necessary anatomy, terminology, legal and ethical issues as well as the policy and guidelines necessary to understanding the scope of practice and the practical aspects of dental assisting.
Topics include instrument identification, equipment maintenance, tooth structure, oral cavity anatomy, dental anesthesia, sterilization, tooth charting, restorations, bridge implants, mixing of dental cement, and x-ray techniques (bitewing, panograph, and periphical). The student will learn the steps necessary to assist a dentist while providing quality dental care within the community.
