Dental Assisting

Are you fascinated by the mouth and protecting a person’s teeth throughout their lifetime? If you answered yes, a degree from the Dental Assisting program would prepare you for a career in the delivery in dental treatment.

The Dental Assisting curriculum prepares individuals to assist the dentist in the delivery of dental treatment, and to function as integral members of the dental team while performing chairside and related office and laboratory procedures. Course work includes instruction in general studies, biomedical sciences, dental sciences, clinical sciences, and clinical practice. A combination of lecture, laboratory, and clinical experiences provides students with knowledge in infection/hazard control, radiography, dental materials, preventive dentistry, and clinical procedures. Graduates may be eligible to take the Dental Assisting National Board Examination to become Certified Dental Assistants. As a Dental Assistant II, defined by the Dental Laws of North Carolina, graduates work in dental offices and other related areas.
