The ACC Dental Assisting program is designed to provide you with the skills and knowledge necessary to qualify for an entry-level position as a Dental Assistant. Emphasis is placed on the Registered Dental Assistant practical and written examinations, which you are encouraged to sit for once you have successfully completed the program.
Today's dental assistants play important roles assisting dentists, such as:
- Sterilizing instruments and equipment
- Preparing materials
- Gathering patient dental records
- Instructing patients in proper dental hygiene
- and many other important responsibilities
ACC's dynamic curriculum can prepare you for Coronal Polish Certification,* Pit and Fissure Certification,* and the requirements necessary to earn a California Radiation Safety Certificate (limited to dental x-ray).
The focus is on your success!
The goal of our program is to help you graduate with the confidence and qualifications to begin your career as a dental assistant.
*The Coronal Polish Certificate and Pit and Fissure Certification are awarded by the State of California upon successful completion of the RDA exams and completion of a state approved course. Students must successfully complete coronal polish, pit and fissure, and radiation safety written and practical examinations with a minimum score of 75 percent.
