The 24-week didactic program, offered at Northwest Suburban College, is your chance to enter an exciting industry with plenty of potential for growth. When the class ends, a 4-8 weeks Dental Assistant externship begins. You will receive supervised training and work with real patients and learn first-hand from industry professionals. During externships, our students get vital dental experience, and create valuable connections – many are considered for employment right at the externship sites.
Dental assistants provide quality preventative and corrective dental care under direct supervision of the dentist or dental hygienist. The dental assistant is responsible for assisting dentists and dental hygienists with patient care as well as providing certain administrative support to the office.
