Everest Institute in Bensalem Offers Dental Assistant Training
Posted Monday, Jul 18, 2011 by
Dental health is important. When dental health is neglected, gum disease and teeth deterioration can be the result.
Harmful bacterial makes its abode in the mouth and will eventually start eating into the teeth. Whatever the case, a harmful presence of bacteria due to poor hygiene habits are often the initial conditions that may lead to an individual losing his or her teeth.
Dental assistants provide a great service in assisting dentists and educating clients on the benefits of good dental hygiene. And performing chairside assisting procedures and a myriad of office and laboratory duties is a typical workday for many dental assistants.
Dental assistant training can give students a basic knowledge of dental sciences that allows them to gain proficiency in the skills required to be effective in lab and clinical settings.
Dental Assistant courses offered at the Bensalem campus include:
- Dental Office Emergencies and Compliance
- Dental Radiography
- Dental Specialties
- Operatory Dentistry
- Laboratory Procedures
- Dental Anatomy and Orthodontics
- Dental Health
Students also gain valuable hands-on experience in a typical laboratory setting on equipment like amalgamators, dental unit and chairs, oxygen tanks, personal computers and much more.
While no job can ever be guaranteed, your training, personal commitment and local market conditions may lead to job interviews for entry-level employment as dental receptionists, dental assistants or dental X-ray technicians.
