The Dental Assisting Certification Program prepares students for entry-level positions in one of the fastest growing healthcare careers. The purpose of this course is to familiarize the student with all areas of pre-clinical dental assisting and provide training in the professional skills required to function as an assistant in the dental practice. In addition to entry-level administrative jobs, this course is ideal for students interested in pursuing a future formal Dental Hygienist program.


This course covers several key areas and topics: Administrative aspects include the history of dentistry and dental assisting, introduction to the dental office, the legal aspects of dentistry, policies and guidelines.


Clinical aspects include: introduction to oral anatomy, dental operatory, dental equipment, introduction to tooth structure, primary and permanent teeth, the oral cavity and related structures, proper patient positioning, dental hand-pieces, sterilization, and other areas.


This program includes 108 hours of instruction and textbooks along with hands-on labs, CPR training and the Georgia X-Ray Safety examination.
