Dental Assistant Training

Dental Assistant Training Program
Serving Fayetteville, Raleigh, and Greensboro, NC

Training as a dental assistant at Sunrise School of Dental Assisting consists of a diverse mix of classroom lectures and hands-on, clinical exercises. Our accelerated dental assistant training program begins with foundational material that prepares students for a successful dental assistant career, including dental, head and neck anatomy, tooth morphology and terminology, as well as practical skills such as dental charting and sterilization.

Because of the varying roles dental assistants can fill as members of a dental team, training covers topics ranging from microbiology to CPR to ethical issues in health care. However, the majority of dental assistant training consists of clinical experiences designed to introduce students to basic dental and laboratory procedures. Within our program we cover different courses including a dental x-ray course, dental radiology course, and nitrous oxide sedation course.

Clinical exercises at our dental assistant school will cover topics including matrix and wedge placement, impressions, temporary crown fabrication, and more. Our instructors will cover all the daily dental assistant tasks that are vital to the delivery of quality care.

Our Comprehensive 13-Week Dental Assisting Program

The 13-week dental assisting program at Sunrise School of Dental Assisting is uniquely tailored to give students the most realistic clinical exercises possible. At each of our 3 locations in the Raleigh, Fayetteville, and Greensboro, NC communities, students have access to the resources and facilities of operating dental practices, providing an unparalleled, up-close experience with the world of dental care. Whereas most dental assisting programs operate in a mock clinical setting, our students have the opportunity to rotate through one of several private dental practices across the Triangle, each of which is equipped with the latest in dental technology.

We believe in clinical excellence and are committed to providing our students the support they need in their academic journey. Every class has a dedicated instructor with abundant experience in clinical dental assisting. Our instructors are available to our students for one-on-one tutoring; in addition, the high level of individual attention they receive as part of our dental assistant training program.
