DAS-200 - Dental Assisting Techniques 22 credits
A continuation of the first semester, this course seeks to advance the skill and dexterity of the student in all techniques. There is a coordination of activities in an effort to combine chairside performance with general dental assisting tasks.
Additionally, this course is designed to enhance the student's awareness of various employment opportunities that will be available upon graduation. To accomplish this goal, the student will pursue an in-depth study of the numerous dental specialties, including Periodontics, Pediatric Dentistry, Orthodontics, Oral Surgery, Endodontics and Prosthodontics. With this knowledge, the student will be able to integrate effectively the theory of dental assisting with the practical application of all procedures.
In order to educate the student regarding the legal responsibilities to the dentist, the patient, and ultimately to the field of dental assisting, the student will also receive lectures on ethics and jurisprudence as they pertain to the practice of dentistry. The student will learn how to construct a letter of application and resume which will be included in an e-Portfolio to aid the student in marketing their skills and finding employment in the field of dentistry.
