    The Lorain County JVS Adult Dental Assisting/Radiography program has seven new graduates. The graduates, staff and the student’s friends and family celebrated the completion of the four-month program on March 8, 2018. 

    The new Dental Assisting graduates are Danielle Hale, Christina Hayes, Neena Henderson, Breanna Korth, Abigail Melendez, Yvette Sanchez, and Ashley Woods.

    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. Upon graduation, you will learn everything you need to know to start your career.”

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