Begin your journey to becoming a certified dental assistant with the Dental Assisting Training Program at Arizona College. Two of the component exams necessary for certification, Radiation Health and Safety (RHS) and Infection Control (ICE), can be completed during this program. RHS and ICE have no eligibility requirements.
Dental assistants work alongside dentists and dental hygienists to provide patient care during procedures and examinations.
Dental work environments may include: General Practice Offices, Pediatric Dental Offices, Cosmetic Dentistry Offices, Orthodontic Offices, and Dental Laboratories.
It is important for dental assistants to be able to help keep patients calm and comfortable, so the dentist can perform procedures as needed.
Due to COVID-19 we have implemented strict health and safety protocols including temperature checks, mask wearing, sanitizing, and distancing to protect our students and staff.
