Certificate in Dental Assisting

Dental Assistant Training in California and Washington

The growing trend in dental care is for increased use of dental assistants, allowing dentists to provide more specialized patient care. The Certificate in Dental Assisting program at Charter College can help you prepare to enter this field.

Responsibilities may include sterilizing and disinfecting instruments and equipment, preparing and laying out materials, taking dental x-rays and processing x-ray film.
