Dental Assistant

As a Dental Assistant, you’ll provide service with a smile as you ensure procedures are performed smoothly, efficiently and most important, comfortably.

Lincoln’s Dental Assistant programs prepare students to sit for the Radiation Health and Safety (RHS), and Infection Control (ICE) portions of the Certified Dental Assistant (CDA) exam. Through lectures, labs and simulated exercises, students receive a well-rounded foundation in Dental Assisting.

  • Students practice Dental Assistant training on a patient simulator manikin (Typodont) to master safety measures, infection control techniques, exposure, processing, mounting, and storage of patient x-rays.
  • Instructors are Certified Dental Assistants (CDA), and have held assisting positions in the field.
  • Learn proper chair-side assistance to help dentists perform surgical procedures, dental implants, braces, taking impressions and other cosmetics/esthetic treatments.
  • Attain dental office administration skills such as basic accounting, coding and billing and record keeping.
  • Campuses are equipped with important learning tools such as dental labs and sterilization rooms set up just like those in actual dental offices.
  • Participate in a clinical externship, with the opportunity to work with patients of varying conditions under the supervision of a licensed dentist.

Lincoln’s hands-on Dental Assistant training puts the tools you need to succeed literally in your hands, as you’ll get a true feel for working with instruments in simulated dental settings at school. As a Dental Assistant, you’re not just a team member – you’re an advocate for proper dental and oral care, and have the ability to impact other people’s wellness.
