A Dental Front Office Course Like No Other

The curriculum has been designed by OC Dental Academy to make your learning informational and interactive. Critical thinking questions challenge the student to reach beyond basic learning, to research subjects and express an opinion based on knowledge obtained in the textbook, additional resources, and interactive discussions. As a member of the dental healthcare team, the administrative dental assistant will need to become proficient in essential skills, such as problem-solving, critical thinking, teamwork, and leadership to adapt to the new and emerging technology.

For an administrative dental assistant to move beyond the role of a data-entry technician, that person must become skilled in communications, basic bookkeeping, appointment control, and records management, as well as fundamental dental procedures and terminology. The course also introduces a new interactive tool that simulates a week in the life of a typical administrative dental assistant!

  • Introduction to the Dental Profession

  • Dental Basics

  • Communication Skills: Principles and Practices
