Every year the oral care industry continues to grow and expand in scope of service as well as new patient density. This is due in part to increased availability of dental insurance, and an older population with greater access to quality dental and specialist oral care.

To answer this opportunity many dentists, orthodontist, periodontists, and endodontic clinics are attempting to grow their scope of service. This in turn calls for increased staffing of dental hygienists and professionally trained dental assistants.

Here at the Dental Assisting Institute of Virginia in Colonial Heights, Virginia we offer a comprehensive training program for aspiring dental assistants. This involves a 78-hour lecture series with classroom education, as well as a 50-hour internship to provide our students with real world experience.

Dental assistants are often called upon to play a wide variety of roles in oral care clinics. This includes clerical duties, patient relationships, coordinating with dental labs, as well as assisting with certain aspects of clinical assisting.

At the Dental Assisting Institute of Virginia, we also train our students extensively in the preparation of various materials, assisting with taking impressions, preparing equipment trays, sterilizing equipment and several other clinical tasks.
