    Adult Dental Assisting Students are Launching their Careers at the JVS

    February 4, 2018

    It’s a new year and students at the JVS Adult Career Center are pursuing a career in Dental Assisting/Radiography.

    The program prepares students for a chairside position in a dental office. The course also introduces dental anatomy, terminology, dental specialties, laboratory procedures, infection control, sterilization procedures, dental instruments, and mixing dental materials. The Adult Career Center also includes a 7-hour initial training course for Dental Assistant Radiographer. 

    Instructor Dawn Bush said dental assisting is a growing career. “You can become a Dental Assistant in four months.  You will learn everything you need to know to start your career. You’ll also experience hands-on training in our new dental lab.”  

    The program also includes an unpaid internship. The internship is the first step to obtaining a Dental Assistant Radiographer’s certificate in Ohio. 

    Angela Pasadyn said she still has fond memories of the Dental Assisting program. “I really enjoyed the experience with doing something different than I was doing.   I had a great teacher who guided us and prepared us for helping patients.”  

    Former student Mashala Lorentz said she was also impressed with the Dental Assisting program and the positive atmosphere. “I really liked the small class setting so, you end up making great friends along your journey.”
