Program Description

Dental Assistants at Jordan Valley are a key part of providing our patients with high quality dental care.  DAs work on a small team in a fast-paced environment.  Under the supervision of a dentist DAs are responsible for: helping patients feel comfortable during their visit, getting vital signs and a medical history for all patients, performing preventative services (exams, x-rays, cleanings, flossing and polishing), setting up and assisting the dentist with procedures such as restorations, extractions, root canals, etc., and disinfecting and preparing the room for the next patient. Successful Dental Apprentices have an interest in how the human body works, and have strong communication, organizational and interpersonal skills.
