Dental Assisting

Students in the Dental Assisting Program complete training in dental and health sciences, radiology, medical emergencies, and dental specialties, as well as hands-on training in the Ellen Jones Dental Clinic. The curriculum is competency-based requiring students to perform prescribed duties and tasks. The program’s performance tests require each student to achieve a high level of competency. The program stresses academic integration particularly in the area of science. Students use a computer lab to work with dental charting programs, the Watson Enterprise micro study program, and power point presentations. Students have a unique opportunity to work with dentists, giving them experience and exposure to the latest technologies. Students also do a six month internship with local dentists in the community, often resulting in employment. After successfully completing an examination required and approved by the Mass. Board of Registration in Dentistry, seniors will earn a Certificate in Dental Radiology.
