Dental Assistant Certificate

The dental assistant is a vitally important member of the dental office team. Dental assisting requires diverse and challenging skills, but it is a growing career field that offers many opportunities and benefits.

Dental assistants are responsible for setting up exam rooms, measuring blood pressure, exposing radiographs, taking impressions, pouring molds and fabricat­ing temporary crowns. Dental assistants also use their skills and knowledge in office management, oral health counseling, laboratory procedures, dental radiography and radiation safety to assist in all phases of dental treatments.

As a self-paced program, the Dental Assistant (DA) certificate plan allows students to sign up for courses they can suc­cessfully complete each term. Students advance to the next course after completing the requirements of the first, at their own pace. The program takes dedication and students with excellent study habits.  

TSTC graduates can boost their professional credibility wit industry certifications such as Texas State Board of Dental Examiners Registered Dental Assisting Exam, the state required exam. Students can take the exam on campus -- providing them the convenience and comfort of testing in a familiar place.

In their final semester, students will take X-rays of patients. Finding these patients will be the responsibility of the student. Liability insurance is required and will be handled through the college.
