Practitioners throughout the oral care industry need professionally trained and certified dental assistants to help with a wide range of daily operations. General dentists, orthodontists and oral surgeons rely on their staff to help maximize patient satisfaction. In some of these clinics, dental assistants help with patient relations and clinical procedures.
Here at the Dental Assisting Institute of Virginia, we provide a comprehensive education program for individuals who are interested in pursuing this rewarding career path. We start with a 78-hour lecture series which includes some lab and classroom skill development.
The goal is to provide you with the general knowledge necessary to perform clerical, clinical and other office tasks in the oral care industry. Our program also helps you develop a professional chairside manner for situations where you will need to interact directly with a patient.
Upon completing the lecture series we will set you up with a 50-hour internship to help endow you with real-world experience and further develop your clinical skills as well as patient relation techniques.
When you have completed the internship we will certify you as a dental assistant capable of taking on a wide range of roles in the oral care industry.
