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.

Ross has been great in my life. The instructors got me through some hard times in class and in my personal life. This experience has been wonderful. I've never completed any higher education until now. Ross has driven me to continue toward my nursing degree. After externship, I now work for a great doctor in pain management, and I love it.Toshiba Smith Graduate Medical Assistant student at Granger, IN campus Graduation: December 31, 2018
Ross is amazing to me, it saved and changed my life when I felt I had nowhere to go. I went to Ross to get information about their training program, not expecting to be enrolled. The staff was very friendly and informative and by the time I left, my life had changed. I had some fears about the courses, but the staff was always so encouraging and supportive of me. The program is full of motivation and support and that helped me maintain a good grade point average. I am now a proud graduate of Ross Medical Education Center. I was in a very dark place, and Ross helped save my life.Angela Baldomero-Benet Graduate Medical Assistant student at Knoxville, TN campus Graduation: October 18, 2019
What I love about Ross is the program structure, the small classes and easy access to your instructors. Because Ross focuses mainly on your certification, the completion time is short and you aren't burdened with unnecessary pre-requisite classes.Trevondra McClinton Graduate Medical Insurance Billing and Office Administration student at Kokomo, IN campus Graduation: January 4, 2020
