As a part of the program, you will get exposure to various career paths as a Dental Assistant, from orthodontics and periodontics to general dentistry, among others.
Students receive their Dental Assistant Permit from the Oklahoma Board of Dentistry, their first expanded function duty of Radiation Safety and Protection, and are certified in Healthcare Provider CPR.
