Making Smiles More Beautiful
A dental assistant is an important part of the dental team. Under the direction of a dentist, dental assistants can perform a variety of dental procedures including finishing and polishing composite restorations, taking impressions, and developing radiographs. Dental assistants must be able to work on a team, have good manual dexterity, and have good communication skills.
During the 16-month Specialized Associate degree program, students can learn four-handed dentistry, dental procedures, and office procedures. Students learn in a simulated on-site dental clinic and complete two externships to gain valuable real world experience with patients. Bradford School's dental assisting program also includes expanded functions.
