Looking for a Rewarding Career?

Are you looking to become a dental assistant? Interested in what a dental assistant does on a daily basis? In just 12-weeks, you can become one of the most highly sought out Dental Assistants. Due to new technologies and the aging of the population, more people are seeking oral care. All of these factors attribute to an increased need for more dental assistants. If you enjoy helping others and working in a rewarding environment, dental assisting is the career for you.​

What is a Dental Assistant?​

Dental assistants are the backbone to any successful dental practice. As a dental assistant, you will greatly increase the efficiency of the dentist by delivering quality oral health care. Dental Assistants play a vital role on the dental care team. If you have strong communication skills, enjoy working with your hands as well as your mind and want a career with responsibility, dental assisting is for you.

Dental Assistants may have different duties and responsibilities within a dentist’s office based on the different regulations for that state. However, the core focus of their work is always on patient care, often preparing patients for examinations and procedures or working alongside the dentist when examining and treating patients

What a Dental Assistant does...​

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, dental assistants perform tasks, including cleaning plaque, taking x-rays, record keeping and scheduling appointments. Dental assistants typically do the following:

Almost all dental assistants work in dentists’ offices. Dental assistants work under the supervision of dentists and alongside dental hygienists. Dental assistants take many precautions when working with patients including wearing safety glasses, surgical masks, protective clothing, and gloves to protect themselves and patients from infectious diseases. Dental assistants must also follow safety procedures to minimize the risk to patients’ vital organs from doses of radiation during X-ray procedures.

Dental Assistant Job Growth

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment of dental assistants is projected to grow 19 percent from 2016 to 2026, much faster than the average for all occupations. Ongoing research linking oral health and general health will continue to increase the demand for preventive dental services. Dentists will continue to hire dental assistants to complete routine tasks, allowing the dentist to work more efficiently. As dental practices grow, more dental assistants will be needed.

As the large baby-boom population ages, and as people keep more of their original teeth than did previous generations, the need to maintain and treat teeth will continue to increase the need for dental care.

I would highly recommend this program! It is very hands on and the instructors make sure that we walk away with a full understanding of what we’ve learned. This has given me the opportunity to find experience in offices, as well as finding which speciality I want to peruse. I would recommend this to anyone who is looking into being an assistant!
