Dr. Andrew Carletti, Administrator Norma Tyler and Karen Summers offer a hands-on approach to training dental assistants.
If you are thinking about a career change but are not sure what you’d like to do, Dental Careers of Tulsa is here to help you find your path to success. They have been training dental professionals for nearly two decades and they will help you obtain the skills you need to become a dental assistant.
“Dental Careers of Tulsa has optimized quality programs,” said Program Administrator Norma Tyler. With small class sizes (just 8 students at a time) and affordable programs, you’ll be on track to begin a new career in just a few months’ time. “Since 1998, we have been training students to not only be the best at what they do, but also to care for their patients,” she added. “Dental assistant training is so much more than setting up a tray.”
Training session topics include a general introduction to dentistry, X-ray training, infection control, anatomy, instruments and equipment of dentistry, oral surgery, and office management. With this dental assisting course, graduates should have both the confidence and skills required to apply for these positions. “Students are typically ready to work immediately upon finishing the program,” said Norma.
Dental Assisting is a solid and fulfilling career choice. As a dental assistant, you will learn to help care for patients and educate them about their oral health. The curriculum is experience-based, so you won’t be struggling to learn about procedures solely from a book. You’ll dive right in, observing and able to ask questions as they come up. The hands-on atmosphere gives you an edge when it comes to recalling the material, so you’ll be learning faster and retaining more than you might be while attending programs that are rooted in traditional lectures and textbook study.
The program also comes with built-in experience, which is required for most positions and it can be difficult to obtain. “Our students complete a 40-hour internship, allowing them to have hands-on training in their field of interest,” said Norma. They even offer professional guidance, teaching you the ins and outs of applying to positions in this field so you will be set up for success from the start.
The unique curriculum at Dental Careers of Tulsa gives working adults the ability to change their careers on their own time. They offer evening and weekend courses that allow students to continue working during the training period of 10-14 weeks. If you are considering a career in the health or medical field, attending Dental Careers of Tulsa in Sapulpa is one of the fastest ways to go from just thinking about a change to landing a brand new career as a dental professional.
Classes begin in the spring, summer and fall. Don’t delay! Call Dental Careers of Tulsa to enroll or for more information about their programs.
