Get started on your new career today!
IntelliTec College in Grand Junction is proud to honor our Dental Assisting students and Instructors, Mrs. Prather and Dr. Kundstater!
According the Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment of dental assistants is expected to grow by 31 percent from 2010 to 2020, much faster than the average for all occupations. On-going research linking oral health and general health will continue to increase the demand for preventive dental services. As dental practices grow, more dental assistants will be needed. Dental assistants work under the supervision of dentists and may work closely with dental hygienists in their day-to-day activities.
Sometimes a smile says it all. Our students are learning the fundamentals of caring for teeth, cavity filling technology, chair-side assisting, dental X-rays, and HIPAA and OSHA requirements. They also study dental office administration and management duties like filing insurance claims, directing patients to examination rooms and handling patient records. These skills will help make them valuable members of a dental team.Dental Assistants Week is upon us!
A very special THANKS!
To Mrs. Prather and Dr. K. for all their hard work and support of our Dental Assisting students![boilerplate about-grand-junction]
