The Dental Assisting program at Reeves College is designed to provide hands-on training and prepare graduates to compete for skilled jobs in the dental industry.
In your dental assistant courses, you will learn how to prepare patients for treatment, assist dentists during treatment, process radiographs, perform infection control procedures, maintain patient records, and other general administrative duties. Additionally, you’ll study environmental health and safety, oral facial science, and other core dentistry subjects.
The program provides both comprehensive and intensive education and training leading to a career as a Registered Dental Assistant.
Graduates who successfully complete this program must also successfully complete the National Dental Assisting Examination Board Written Examination and Clinical Practice Evaluation to be eligible to apply for registration with the College of Alberta Dental Assistants.
