Clinical sessions are lead by an Indiana state licensed dentist. Teaching staff must have a minimum of 3 years clinical experience, as well as relevant educational background in the dental assisting field.
The American Institute of Dental Assisting prepares students for entry-level positions as a dental chairside assistant. Students learn basic chairside assisting by practicing the skills necessary to properly transfer instruments, mix filling and impression materials, expose and develop dental x-rays, sterilize instruments, and maintain a sterile environment. Students learn these skills by assisting a Indiana licensed dentist performing actual, live dental procedures.
