The role of dentist is one of critical importance in our society with the rate of periodontal disease rising at alarming levels. With 2 out of every 3 American adults currently experiencing some form of gum disease, according to the CDC, regular dental checkups are the best way to prevent worsening conditions, and someone has to fill that need. At the California Healing Arts College we offer a wide range of courses and instruction in a variety of healthcare and wellness fields including training in the occupation of dental assistant.
Our dental assistant program is a high quality course taught by the most experienced instructors designed to give students the tools and knowledge they need to enter the dentistry field. We help you earn necessary certifications including the California Radiation Safety Certificate for dental X-rays. You’ll practice and master the techniques and procedures needed to excel in a modern dental lab. By the conclusion of the course, you’ll gain a proficiency with terminology, diagnostic procedures, and dentistry operations. Graduates will receive an eight-hour Infection Control certificate as well as a two-hour Dental Practice Act certificate.
At the California Healing Arts College, we understand that a four year college isn’t right for everyone. That’s why we commit ourselves to providing a topnotch education that’s more flexible for non-traditional students that also remains affordable for anyone on a budget. In addition to dental assistant, we provide a large spectrum of courses for occupations including as a pharmacy tech, veterinary assistant, or even as a personal fitness trainer. For anyone looking for one of the finest medical assistant schools available, California Healing Arts College also proudly provides courses.
