Dental Assisting prepares students to become Registered Dental Assistants through the state of Washington. Each student will experience hands-on learning providing valuable preparation for entry-level chair-side skills. The program will give students an understanding of different careers that are available in the expanding field of the dental profession.
Students will develop skills in chair-side assisting, equipment and instrument identification and maintenance, sterilization, and OSHA Practices. Students will be prepared to take the National Entry Level Dental Assisting exam.
This program is also a “Bridge” program into the 2- year degree program at Bellingham Technical College with additional prerequisites needed.
