Smile About Being a Valuable Dental Care Team Member
Dental Assisting is a licensed dental profession dedicated to the oral health care for patients of all ages. As a vital member of the dental team, you are involved with assisting the dentist and the hygienist along with independently performing procedures. You will take x-rays, place sealants, take teeth impressions, and work directly with a dentist completing procedures essential to the oral health of patients. Other duties you might complete include treatment room and tray setups, infection control, patient record management, manipulation of dental materials and patient education. 

South Central College’s Dental Assisting programs meet the American Dental Association’s Commission on Dental Accreditation Standard for Dental Assisting. Once you successfully complete the program and the written board exams, you will be licensed through the Minnesota State Board of Dentistry. As part of the program, you complete foundational courses at the North Mankato campus, continue clinical courses at Minnesota State University-Mankato as part of a cooperative program with Dental Hygiene, and complete two internship rotations within the dental community.
