Dental Assistant Program   

Start a new career as a Dental Assistant. This program is designed to give you the basic foundational knowledge and skills necessary to start a career working in a dental office. You will receive hands-on training in an actual dentist office.  The program will focus on the core necessities for job acquisition, including infection control standards, CPR certification , digital and conventional X-ray safety exposure, dental procedures and dental anatomy. This program is unique to the CNY area and a great step towards an exciting career. It does not lead to the NYS Dental Assistant Certification because NYS does not require a certification to work in a dental office, however, if interested in obtaining a NYS CDA, further education would be necessary. Classes runs 13 weeks / 100 hours on Fridays or Saturdays from the hours of 8:00 am to 5:00 pm.
