Learn more about the Dental Assisting Program at Tri-C 


Dental Assistants are competent in technical, interpersonal and management areas. They work directly with dentists and patients and have responsibility for chairside assisting, taking dental radiographs (x-rays), laboratory procedures, business procedures and patient management.

This Short Term Certificate prepares graduates for entry-level positions and the ability to be certified as an Ohio Dental Assistant Radiographer. Graduates may eventually be eligible to take the Ohio Dental Assistants Certification Exam and Dental Assisting National Board Certification Exam once specific exam criteria is met.

Students interested in the Dental Assisting Program must complete 20 hours observation in a dental setting which employs a dental assistant, answer a Personal Narrative and obtain a Background Check.
