The basic dental assisting program at Gwinnett Dental Career Academy
is a 10 week program that is designed to teach basic skills to allow
graduates to obtain a position
as a sterilization tech, hygiene assistant or chairside assistant
in a general dental or specialty office. Graduates of this program will
still have much to learn on the job,
and may later want to take an expanded duties course to increase
their skills and qualifications.
The goal of this program is to be a
stepping stone to allow the graduate
to seek initial employment in a dental office and decide if that
is the best career path without having to make a large investment in
time or money. Graduates of the program will receive a certificate of completion, a Georgia Department of Human Resources Radiology Certificate, and an American Heart Association Healthcare Providers CPR Certificate. The Radiology Certificate and CPR card are the only certificates that are required for dental assistants in the state of Georgia.
The fee for this course is $3600 (subject to change). Class is held on Saturdays from 9am to 4pm.
