If you’re interested in the fast-growing healthcare profession, a career as a dental assistant may be right for you. WITC’s Dental Assistant program prepares graduates to work with dentists as they examine and treat patients. A variety of career paths await graduates including working in general or specialized dental offices, dental laboratories or employment with federal, state, or city agencies.
The program in dental assisting is accredited by the Commission on Dental Accreditation [and has been granted the accreditation status of “approval without reporting requirements”]. The Commission is a specialized accrediting body recognized by the United States Department of Education. The Commission on Dental Accreditation can be contacted at (312) 440-4653 or at 211 East Chicago Avenue, Chicago, IL 60611. The Commission’s Web address is: www.ada.org/home-ada/coda.aspx.
