The oral care industry is rife with general dentists and oral care specialists who are enjoying significant growth in their number of patients as well as the services they offer. As their practices continue to expand demand for dental hygienists, dental assistants and staff continue to grow.

Many of these oral care clinics rely on dental assistants to help with a wide range of day-to-day operations which includes preparation of dental materials, patient interaction, keeping records and preparing radiographic images.

Here at the Dental Assisting Institute of Virginia located in Colonia Heights, Virginia, we offer a comprehensive training program for aspiring dental assistants.

The process starts with a 78-hour lecture series, where you will be introduced to a broad range of topics, including the capturing, handling and development of radiographic images. This training will also include a working understanding of X-ray technology and software. Dentists often rely on these sophisticated technologies to accurately diagnose their patient’s.

After completing the lecture series we will provide you with a 50-hour internship program to give you the kind of real-world experience that oral care practitioners demand from their dental assistants.
