This unique nine-week program is designed to prepare individuals to become dental assistants. This program combines lecture and hands-on classes to expose both current and aspiring dental assistants to all major aspects of the profession. This course is tailored to help participants learn the essential skills and responsibilities required to be a successful member of a dental team. After the completion of our program, participants will be prepared to work in a variety of dental offices.

The main objective of our program is to prepare our participants to become functioning and knowledgeable members of a dental team. Participants will be provided with the opportunity to become certified in CPR and Radiology. They will be prepared for and take DANB’s National Entry Level Dental Assistant (NELDA) certification exams (RHS-Radiation Health and Safety, ICE-Infection Control and AMP-Anatomy, Morphology and Physiology).

Participants will spend time in different dental specialties, learning how to tailor what they’ve been taught in the lectures to each specific specialty. Rotations include: General Dentistry, Prosthodontics, Periodontology & Implantology, Oral Surgery, Orthodontics, Endodontics, Radiology, and Sterilization.

What past participants have said about the program:

What I enjoyed the most about the Dental Assistant Program was being able to shadow and assist dentists and real patients in the different fields of dental work. I also loved the small class experience and getting to share these wonderful nine weeks with other students who I grew very close to.

At BU you receive a foundation of knowledge that you are able to implement right away because the Henry Goldman School of Dental Medicine is a floor away. You have the opportunity to shadow and assist in real dental procedures. I personally believe the best way to learn is hands on. Thank you BU for a fulfilling experience.
