Dental Assistants work in a fast-paced, progressive healthcare profession. The Dental Assisting program addresses all the skills required for students to advance toward a wide range of health career choices. From chair-side dental assisting to dental office management, from exposing and processing dental radiographs, students will learn the skills required by dentists.
A unique aspect of this program is the fully functional dental clinic operating in each school. Students utilize hands-on experience to provide quality dental treatment to local communities. Students prepare patients for treatment, dental materials; provide oral health education, while anticipating the dentist’s needs. Dental assisting students will test for the Delaware Dental Radiologic Technology Exam (DDRT) administered by the Dental Assisting National Board and Cardio-Pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR).
