Are you considering a career as a dental assistant? If so, you'll need to complete a formal training program and gain the necessary skills to succeed in the field. WVJC's online dental assistance training is an excellent option for those looking to gain the knowledge and experience they need to become a dental assistant. With an associate of science degree from IRSC, you can be well-prepared for a professional career in the field. Additionally, if you choose to become certified, USCI offers online training for dental assistant certification.
The DALE Foundation provides online courses, practice tests and other resources to complement the curriculum of your dental assistance program and support student learning in the classroom. Indian River State College's dental management and assistance program is accredited by the Dental Accreditation Commission, so you can be sure that you're receiving quality education. Dental assistants perform many tasks, ranging from providing patient care and taking x-rays to keeping records and scheduling appointments. The laboratory seminar provides students with an additional opportunity to further develop the practical skills they will use as dental assistants.
We understand that behind every dental care student, there is a teacher who is dedicated to their success. Online dental care students take classes on dental terminology, dental science, dental office management, and dental office procedures through the WVJC's easy-to-use online platform. The clinical skills that are fundamental to a successful career as a dental assistant are developed during clinical days that take place on a residential campus equipped with a functioning dental laboratory. IRSC dental care and dental hygiene students are being trained under the direction of experienced and licensed teachers, which may result in longer appointment times.
