Program Summary

The Dental Assisting Diploma Program provides training in performing invasive procedures, such as placing retraction cords and dental dams as well as non-invasive procedures, such as patient education.

 

The objective of this Program is to prepare graduates for entry-level positions as dental assistants.

 

Program completion normally requires eight months for full-time students (assuming the externship is completed at 40hours per week).

 

The Dental Assisting Diploma Program is divided into seven monthly academic periods and one externship period. Students must successfully complete the academic periods with a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.0 in order to be eligible to participate in the externship period.

 

Each state has a dental practice act that governs the duties dental assistants can perform. In the state of Ohio, licensed dentists may assign to dental assistants dental procedures that do not require the professional competence or skill of the licensed dentist, a dental hygienist, or an expanded function dental auxiliary. Additionally, the state of Ohio requires dental assistants to hold a Dental Assistant Radiographer's Certificate issued by the Ohio State Dental Board in order to practice as a dental X-ray machine operator.

 

Upon successful completion of all areas of this Program, graduates will be awarded a Diploma in Dental Assisting.

Dental Assisting Certifications

Earning a dental assisting certification may make a difference in your job search and career prospects after graduation.(1)

In fact, certain states require dental assistants to earn additional credentials or certifications beyond their educational training.(2) Job candidates must also have current certification in cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR).(2) Whether it’s state or national credentials, Remington College strongly recommends that graduates of our Dental Assisting diploma program pursue certifications that may help open more doors to employment.

Dental Assistant Certificates Available

Remington College encourages all Dental Assistant students to take their certification exam once they complete our program, and we can cover your entire examination fee for your first attempt!(3) And not only that, but CPR certification is built into our core Dental Assisting coursework.

Below are the main certification options available to our Dental Assistant students. If a student decides to pursue more than one certification or requires a retest, the student is responsible for payment and registration for each additional certification and exam.

Ohio Dental Assistant Students

Remington College covers the Application Fee for our Dental Assisting graduates in Cleveland wishing to obtain the Dental Assistant Radiographer’s Certificate from the Ohio State Dental Board.(3)

The Ohio State Dental Board regulates the practice of dentistry, dental hygiene, and dental assistant radiography for the state of Ohio. They’re responsible for licensure, regulation, and enforcement of dental practices.(5)

This certificate is awarded to dental assistants who have met the requirements set by the Ohio State Dental Board. To learn more about this certificate, visit: http://www.dental.ohio.gov.
