Only graduates of Ross Medical Education Center or Ross College’s Dental Assistant program are eligible to apply for this degree.
Students will further prepare themselves for their careers by learning fundamental skills that will apply in a dental office.
Students will have the opportunity to learn from allied healthcare professionals and receive instruction on a variety of topics such as the US Healthcare Delivery System, human anatomy and physiology, terminology, epidemiology, and pharmacology. Learning these topics will help students prepare for a career as a dental assistant, dental office manager, or patient service representative.
Other useful and versatile skills students will learn include administrative, customer service, and interpersonal skills. Learning these concepts will assist graduates to become well-rounded professionals throughout their careers. Courses for the Dental Assistant Specialist program include Core Concepts in Health, Lifespan Development, Computer Fundamentals, and Introduction to Communication.
Throughout the program, students will complete outside coursework, and the program will culminate in a capstone project that will allow students to demonstrate what they’ve learned in the course of their studies.

I learned so much in my short time here at Ross. Mrs. Hawley was one of the best teachers I've ever had the pleasure of learning from. She made every day in the classroom enjoyable and amazing. I'm so glad I chose Ross to help me step into my medical career. Now that I've graduated, I feel prepared to start this next chapter in my life and I am very excited.Jessie Morrison Graduate Medical Assistant student at Knoxville, TN campus Graduation: January 11, 2019
My experience at Ross Medical Education Center was very AMAZING! I learned so many things that I never knew about the human body and how it functions. I also learned how to do everything that is required in the medical assistant program to have a chance to go to extern to be able to get more of the hands-on feeling of how things are. The instructors and students are very friendly and very helpful in everyway!Carlissa Davis Graduate Medical Assistant student at Huntsville, AL campus Graduation: January 18, 2019
I never thought that I could accomplish going back to school at the age of 47, but I did it and now it has come to an end. I have enjoyed the Medical Insurance Billing and Office Administration class and have learned a lot from my instructor and my classmates. My instructor helped me in so many ways. I would recommend to anyone to invest in the Medical Insurance Billing and Office Administration class.Robin Myers Graduate Medical Insurance Billing and Office Administration student at Lafayette, IN campus Graduation: February 26, 2019
The program has changed me a lot. I learned to be more professional. I've learned a lot and I watched myself make progress, from getting better grades to having a better and more professional attitude, as well as understanding situations better. It also expanded my knowledge about the medical field. I recommend the program if you are looking to go into the medical field, I think it's a good start.Anderih Toma Graduate Medical Assistant student at Madison Heights, MI campus Graduation: November 18, 2019
