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.
Following my years after high school, coming to Ross was one of the best things I've chosen to do. I've learned a lot through my classmates and teachers. Ross has helped me to further my career for becoming a neonatal nurse practitioner. I highly recommend Ross to anyone who is looking for a great medical program.Lillian Miller Graduate Medical Assistant student at Madison Heights, MI campus Graduation: March 13, 2019

As an older student returning to the classroom after 20 years, I had concerns that the pace and the computer skills needed would make it hard for me to keep up. But I found the staff was incredibly supportive and patient with students at all levels. The small class created an encouraging, friendly environment to learn.Denise Stillwell Graduate Medical Assistant student at Granger, IN campus Graduation: March 27, 2019
Ross has helped me grow, not only in knowledge, but as a person, through helping others, being more patient, and having a better attitude. I'm so thankful to my amazing instructor who truly cares about her students and has gone out of her way many times to help us. Ross is full of caring people who will encourage you to stick with the program and not give up. From my instructors to my classmates, I've always felt welcomed at Ross.Maggie Holle Graduate Medical Assistant student at Fort Wayne, IN campus Graduation: March 12, 2019
I like Ross because it's very hands-on and fast-paced. Everyone is very nice and welcoming. I also like how they help place you in an office when you're completely done with schooling.Brianna Lee Current Dental Assistant student at Kokomo, IN campus Graduation: March 23, 2020
