This online dental assisting course is the most comprehensive you’ll find and will prepare you to become a productive and successful member of a dental team. You’ll learn about every aspect of professional dental assisting, including invaluable real-world perspectives from experienced dental assistants and essential information about anatomy and physiology, preventive dentistry, patient care and communication, radiology, pharmacology, anesthesia, assisting in specialty practices, employment strategies, and much more. Toward the end of the
course, or after completion, you will
have the opportunity to apply for an externship,
where you’ll get real-life clinical assistant
experience. You’ll also be ready to pursue
certification as a dental assistant by passing the radiology and infection control portions of the Dental Assisting National Board examination. The exam or one or more of its components is necessary in states where registration is required for dental assistants. Externship students will need to pass a background check and a possible drug test. You will need to provide an updated resume, current CPR certification and proof of current Hepatitis B vaccinations. This is a partnership with Ed2Go.
