What services are performed by your students?
Our students assist licensed dentists with hygienic and restorative procedures. Students also perform administrative duties, take x-rays, conduct patient in-take and follow-up exams, and educate patients on personal preventative dental health care procedures.
What are your student qualifications?
Our Dental Assistant program attracts students from all over the Seattle area including several who participant in the Bright Future Program at SVI. Our students receive 1,200 hours of well-supervised instruction in all phases of dental assisting.
What are your student outreach services?
Our students participate in community outreach services. They provide oral health education and care to the community. Their goal is to increase the access of dental care to populations that may otherwise be deprived of basic dental upkeep and maintenance. Our students participate in health fairs and they also offer oral hygiene services to elementary school children.
Dental care given to patients in the community is offered only by advanced students. Dental Assistant Program students are also held to the highest academic and personal responsibility standards. The patient may be assured that all care given is of the highest and most professional quality.
