A Dental Hygienist is very similar to a Dental Assistant. To those outside of the profession, these two terms may seem interchangeable, but there are subtle differences to these two professions. They each have a few specific course work classes required that the other does not need-and there are slight, yet important, differences in the tasks performed. You can read more about a Dental Assistant’s Job Description.
In addition to the same job duties a dental assistant would perform, such as collecting patient;s oral and medical history or charting patients’ dental conditions, a dental hygienist may also be trained to:
Both programs require the same basic classes; however, dental hygienist will require aditional program offerings and clinical training beyond those offered for dental assistants at the Sunrise School of Dental Assisting.

Prior to attending Sunrise School of Dental Assisting I had zero knowledge of the dentistry field and what this career choice would have in store for me. I had an awesome instructor, as well as current Dental Assistants at Sunrise, to help guide me and continue to be successful in my career. Everyone has been extremely helpful and I have had nothing less than a great experience. After graduation, I was hired on by Sunrise and couldn’t be more happy with my job and the decision to attend Sunrise School of Dental Assisting! Thank you all!!

Sunrise School of Dental Assisting provided me with the knowledge and skills I needed to begin my career in the Dental field. The instructors were very helpful and thorough in explaining the lessons and procedures to the class, and also made it a point to provide any additional help/tutoring before/after lessons for students. I enjoyed my experience at Sunrise School of Dental Assisting. I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking to receive the proper education necessary in order to excel in their Dental Assisting career

At Sunrise they give you the tools you need to become successful as a Dental Assistant. You have smaller numbers in the class, so you are able to have more one on one time with an instructor if needed. It is a fast paced class, but the instructor is willing to meet with you before class time if you need help. It is a good balance between lectures and actual lab time. You have great hands on experience and work with live “patients” (class members) in order to get an actual feel of what it would be like. The team at Sunrise Dental are very encouraging and push you to strive for your best. They also help with shadowing at different offices and even inform you if there are job openings at other offices. I would recommend this program to anyone and know that they would also get the great training that I have received!
