Dental Assisting is a three-term program accredited by the Commission on Dental Assisting which provides individuals the opportunity to attain the knowledge and skills necessary to work in a dental clinic or dental office.

Upon completion of the program, graduates are prepared to provide basic support under the supervision of a licensed dentist or dental hygienist. Instruction occurs in classrooms, laboratories and dental clinics. It also prepares graduates for state certifications in dental radiographs, pit and fissure sealants, coronal polishing, and topical fluoride application.

This program also prepares students for their Dental Assisting National Board (DANB) Exam.
