Project Description

Organizing, operating, and growing an efficient dental practice is exciting and requires many skills. Our Dental Front Office course gives students 48 hours of internship in a highly successful dental practice to solidify the knowledge of the functions of the dental business office and to provide information on how to organize tasks, complete procedures, develop effective communication skills, and acquire a professional outlook towards dentistry.

Students will complete the course as a well-qualified administrative dental assistant who understands basic business concepts, understands all facets of the dental practice, and will become a key member of the dental office team.

A Dental Front Office Course Like No Other

The curriculum has been designed by The Dental Op to make your learning informational and interactive. Critical thinking questions challenge the student to reach beyond basic learning, to research subjects and express an opinion based on knowledge obtained in the textbook, additional resources, and interactive discussions.

As a member of the dental healthcare team, the administrative dental assistant will need to become proficient in essential skills, such as problem-solving, critical thinking, teamwork, and leadership to adapt to the new and emerging technology.

For an administrative dental assistant to move beyond the role of a data-entry technician, that person must become skilled in communications, basic bookkeeping, appointment control, and records management, as well as fundamental dental procedures and terminology.

The course also introduces a new interactive tool that simulates a week in the life of a typical administrative dental assistant!
