DENTAL ASSISTANT CAREER
12 Weeks to a Better Life
When you enroll in our dental assisting program, you’ll be part of a hands-on learning experience that helps you develop your skills and advance in your career.
The Arizona School of Dental Assisting prepares students for entry level positions as a chairside assistant in a dental office. Students will learn proper chairside assisting by practicing the procedural skills necessary for the position, dental office management, infection control and patient education . Upon graduation, you will receive a Dental Assisting Certificate, making you eligible to work in almost any dental office.
The Dental Assisting program involves twelve weeks of “hands on” training where students have the opportunity of practicing the various routines of chairside assisting. At the completion of the twelve-week portion of the training, the students must successfully complete a 40-hour externship in a local dental office. The externship may be completed in one week or may be spread over a two to three week period. Once you complete the program you will be ready to take your X-ray Certification, Coronal Polish certification and you will be Dentrix ready.
