 Session 17 Students, We FINISHED!

Our Faculty and Staff are pleased to announce that Session 17 Students have completed the Intensive Training Course and have become Dental Assistant I.

On Saturday, December 2, the group met for the final week of the 12 Week Training Program and reviewed all aspects of the Program, including Tooth Identification, Instrument Identification, emergency and infection control procedures and TEAMWORK!!! 

"We feel that to be a GREAT EMPLOYEE, you must be a GREAT TEAMMATE. These students exhibited the ability to "work well with others" to get tasks accomplished in a timely manner, and to learn from each other", said Dr. Karen Barwick, Program Director and echoed by all of the DATC Clinical instructors.

Within 12 Saturday Sessions, the students completed a Workbook of 29 Chapters, submitted and reviewed Resumes and Cover Letters and were tested at least 6 times including Midterm and Final Written and Identification Exams.

Led by a Faculty with many years in the Dental Industry, we taught the Basics for entering the Dental Field with Confidence and open minds.

"Every practice is different. We focus on the TEAM and PROFESSIONAL Aspects of the Dental Professional, as well as entry level skills to build a successful career", says Dr. Karen Barwick, Program Director of DATC.

Our Faculty and Staff have been with the Program since its inception in 2010. We pride ourselves on graduating students who are prepared for their First Job or their Forever Dental Home, with the understanding that they have just learned what's at the TIP of the iceberg.

 

Each week, the students learn new skills that build upon the previous week. By the end of Week 12, each student has Entry Level Skills to use in obtaining that all important First Job!!!
