The Dental Careers program provides students with opportunities to learn skills needed when assisting dentists during chair-side procedures and daily office responsibilities. Areas of instruction include: tooth identification, terminology, disinfection/sterilization, oral health, dental materials, instrumentation, office records, digital x-rays, radiation safety, hygiene, office management software, and OSHA guidelines. Students gain practical experience through job shadowing at local dental offices. Students may participate in the second year program to receive advanced training.
