Dental Assistant Training Programs in Clearwater
Learn what it takes to work in a dental office.
What’s one of the first things you usually notice when you meet someone? If you said teeth, you’re not alone. Smiles can greatly affect how people perceive us. In that way, dental care is an important aspect of overall health and wellbeing.
As a dental assistant, you could work with patients and complete office tasks like recording patient history and making appointments. UMA’s Dental Assistant with Expanded Functions program also offers expanded functions training—which includes coronal polishing, sealant placement, and other dental tasks.
UMA’s Dental Assistant with Expanded Functions program includes a 240-hour unpaid externship under supervision in a local dentist office. During this time, you’ll get real-world, hands-on training. It’s a great way to learn the practical skills necessary for a career as a dental assistant.
