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.
