The Course will provide students with the essential knowledge, skills and practical experience to successfully be familiar with the Full Sequence of Orthodontics. The student will learn to describe the types of malocclusions, discuss corrective orthodontics, describe the types of treatment involved and perform procedures to assist the Orthodontist. Such as changing archwires, ligature ties, take impressions, take Orthodontic photos and much more.
This Course is designed to give the basic terminology, knowledge and skills to an individual wanting to become an Entry Level Orthodontic Dental Assistant (no experience required) or to expand the skills of an Expanded Functions Dental Assistant.
We have collaborated with local Orthodontists to train students in exactly what the Orthodontist would want you to know before hiring an Entry Level Orthodontic Dental Assistant.
