Course Description

The Dental Assisting Program is designed to prepare the student to function effectively as an integral member of the dental health care team. Stimulating, fast-paced instruction relies heavily on student participation. The course provides classroom instruction and basic clinical assisting skills. During the ten weeks of training, students will learn dental theory and terminology, the techniques of four-handed chairside procedures, and exposing and processing dental radiographs, including an introduction to digital and panoramic radiology. Instruction also covers infection control standards, obtaining alginate impressions of the oral cavity for study models and custom trays for tooth whitening. Students will be instructed on mixing dental materials and cements and how to fabricate provisional coverage. Students will spend time assisting and observing in a dental office. The student will have the opportunity to assist the dentist on a patient during this class. One-time tuition covers instruction, materials, dental supplies, and equipment. The first session is held at Brookhaven College. Clinical labs are conducted at Dental Careers Foundation, 1200 Coit, Suite 100, Plano, TX, 75075.

Prerequisites: Students must have had at least the first of three doses of Hepatitis B Vaccine prior to registering for this class; they must also have the ability to read at the 12th grade level.

I just want to take this time to thank you. You and your staff have been so helpful! I have learned so much from attending this class.
