Many dental and oral healthcare clinics rely on clear radiographic images and X-rays in the diagnosis and treatment of many oral health conditions. This could be something as simple as determining the severity of tooth decay within a tooth, or understanding the available oral structure before performing oral surgery.


Many dentists, periodontists, endodontists, and oral surgeons rely on the dental assistants on their staff to provide them with clear radiographic images. To answer this important need the Dental Assisting Institute of Virginia, in Colonial Heights Virginia, offers a comprehensive training course for aspiring dental assistants.


This includes 78 hours of lecture and education, as well as a wide range of student resources, and faculty communication. This includes basic instructions on how to develop X-rays, and handle other forms of radiographic imagery.


Once you have completed the classroom portion of the program, the Dental Assisting Institute of Virginia will set you up with a 50-hour internship. Here you will gain the kind of real-world experience that oral healthcare practitioners appreciate in their dental assistants.

If you live in the Colonial Heights, Virginia, area and you are interested in learning more about a rewarding career as a dental assistant, you should call 804-526-0231 to speak to one of the representatives at the Dental Assisting Institute of Virginia.
