Dental Assistant I - The Journey Begins

Classes start what should I expect?

Session 11 started September 6th and there is so much information to take in.  As we hit the ground running toward a new future and career in Dentistry, we learn about Introduction to Dentistry, Office Emergencies and Infection Control and Clinical Dentistry.

The night of Orientation the DATC Staff distributed the course materials and gave us our Beginning Assignments.  We began hands-on learning on September 6th in our first class.  We began to learn how to identify teeth in week 1 and then learned about Office Emergencies, Infection Control, OSHA and SPICE week 2.  In our third week we learned about Clinical Dentistry and began identifying instruments and learning how to transfer instruments.

We will SUCCEED and on November 22, 2014 we will become Dental Assistant I’s and be ready to start a new career in Dentistry.

If you haven’t sent in your Application for Admission, what are you waiting for?  It's never too late, Orientation for Session 12 is at 6pm on Thursday, February 12, 2015.  Class size is limited and spaces are already filling up fast.  Visit us at www.DATCinc.com .  Follow us on Facebook, Twitter, Google +, LinkedIn and check in with us on Foursquare when you sign up today.
