About Our Course
Dental Assistant Course
Our dental assistant course is specifically designed to provide you with the skills and certifications you need to apply and excel in your profession. Our curriculum includes a thorough exploration of dental anatomy, terminology, dental procedures, and radiography. It also includes instruction and hands-on training with patient care techniques, infection control, and dental office management. After successful completion of the academy, you will receive your RHS (Radiation Health and Safety Practice) and CPR certification required to apply for dental assisting positions.
SoCo Dental Academy’s course runs for 12 consecutive weeks excluding holidays. We offer morning, afternoon, and evening class times for the convenience of students. The course includes lecture material, CPR and RHS certification, as well as hours of hands-on training. In addition, there will be access to the online classroom and instructors for direction and guidance along with an externship where you will receive practical on the job training from licensed dentists and certified assistants in the area.
For clinical hours, SoCo Dental Academy shares space with a modern dental facility designed with dental exam rooms, a sterilization area, and a dental laboratory. Students will experience training not only in our amazing SoCo Dental Academy clinic but also in the wonderful Smile Orthodontics & Pediatric Dentistry facility. As a dental assistant in training, we feel it is important to take on all aspects of this profession. Therefore, appropriate clinical dental attire: scrubs, safety glasses, gloves, and masks, will be provided and are included in the program tuition.
