Become A Registered Dental Assistant In Less Than A Year (While Working!)

Interested in our Dental Assisting Program (Distance) program?  Join us for a FREE informational Webinar on Thursday, May 6 at 6:00 pm AST. To register visit https://www.cbbccareercollege.ca/dental-assisting-distance-webinar-w/

A Dental Assistant is a dental health professional who works closely with and under the supervision of a dentist. This isn’t a desk job. You’ll work with patients performing tasks before and after the dentist sees them, and you’ll also get to assist the dentist and dental staff during specific procedures.

On the less practical side of things you may also take on a bit of an administrative role communicating with patients and suppliers (scheduling appointments, answering the telephone, billing and ordering supplies – that sort of stuff), so liking people is key! If you have previous experience working in the retail or food services world you’ll be amazed how your multitasking skills will support you in this new and exciting field.

The salary

According to www.jobbank.gc.ca (NOC 3411), Dental Assistants earn an average of $22.50 per hour. Based on a 40 hour work week that’s an annual salary of $46,800 a year with the ability to make even more. A high range wage for this position is $30 an hour, or $62,400 annually!

The training

Our new Dental Assisting Program (Distance) in Sydney consists of online, clinical instruction, and a work term placement (at a dental office) throughout the program. So, students will receive 51 weeks of highly structured, full-time, instructor-paced distance education that uses  a combination of online, on-campus clinical training, and practicum placement! You’ll spend two days per week in a work-term placement at a dental practice, as well as three days per week of highly structured, remote, and instructor-led online learning. Students also spend five weeks at CBBC’s dental clinic.
