Help the world smile. The Dental Assisting program is accredited by The Commission on Dental Accreditation.
Students in this program will learn how to perform a wide range of duties important to dental care, including: chairside assisting, first aid, radiology, office and laboratory procedures, and practice management. In addition to classroom work, students receive more than 300 hours of real-world clinical experience at a variety of dental facilities so that when they do graduate, they can feel confident in their ability to do their job, regardless of the position they are in.
Students also participate in service learning opportunities throughout the year, such as volunteering with the Kansas Mission of Mercy program, which provides free dental care to thousands of people annually, and working with local preschool children to teach them to care for their teeth.
