Dental assistants are in high demand all across the oral healthcare industry. They play any number of key roles in daily operations throughout different dental disciplines. One place where dental assistants are often needed is to assist in clinical applications at endodontic clinics.

This is a special focus of the dental industry that involves treating teeth with distressed or decayed internal structures. Many times, this calls for a special endodontist to perform a root canal. A dental assistant in this type of clinic might be called upon to pass equipment during the treatment or prepare an impression.

After the treatment, a dental assistant might then be needed to sterilize equipment, restock supplies and prepare tool trays for the next endodontic procedure on the docket.

Here at the Dental Assisting Institute of Virginia, our 78-hour lecture series and 50-hour internship will prepare you for a successful career as a dental assistant. Upon completion of the program, we will certify you to work as a dental assistant in an endodontic, orthodontic, oral surgery or general dentistry clinic.
