Dental Assistant Students taking x-rays

The Ross Medical Education Center Dental Assistant program can be completed in just 36 weeks on the 4 days per week schedule, or in 30 weeks on the 5 days per week schedule. Instructors with experience in the field provide instruction to students on many necessary skills including radiograph processing, preparing and disposing of anesthetic, taking and recording vital signs, and taking impressions. Additionally, students are presented with important terminology and basic administrative tasks such as preparing a new patient chart, filing medical records, scheduling appointments, and completing dental insurance claim forms. Once students successfully complete the program, they should be prepared to seek entry-level positions as Dental Assistants, Dental Receptionists, Dental Insurance Clerks, Dental Supply Salespeople, and/or Administrative Assistants.

Dental Assistant Externships

Ross Medical Education Center requires diploma/certificate program students to complete a practical externship in order to graduate. The externship is crucial to the learning experience for every Ross student, giving them a chance to apply what they have been given instruction on in the classroom to a real world setting. The externship also provides employers an opportunity to assess students’ skills prior to hiring entry-level allied health professionals. In addition, unlike some other schools, Ross does not schedule or require any waiting period for externships as part of the curriculum! This is another example of our commitment to students’ success.
