Dental Assistant

Diploma Program


Dental assistant programs prepare students to work closely with dentists and ensure that dental practices are operating with a high degree of efficiency.

Dental Assistant TrainingStudents can earn a Diploma in Dental Assistant at Anthem College—Beaverton (Portland, Oregon). The program focuses on hands-on learning that emphasizes chairside skills, radiography and laboratory procedures. Other courses address polishing and dental health.

A professional development course rounds out the program with critical information for all allied health professionals, and covers topics such as universal precautions and OSHA guidelines.

Portland is a major metropolitan area that should mirror the overall positive career outlook in the US for dental assistants. The region is noted for its excellent healthcare facilities that include a Veterans Administration medical center and the Oregon Health Sciences University School of Dentistry. In addition, a recent report from Georgetown University says that people whose education is related to a specific allied health career are more likely to become employed.

Hands-on Dental Assistant Training

After satisfactorily completing coursework, students are placed in an externship. The externship gives students an opportunity to practice and further develop their skills in real-world settings, and can give them an edge to compete for positions as a chairside assistant or dental receptionist.
