Gaining Hands-On Experience for Your Resume
When you are looking for dental assistant positions, having real hands-on clinical experience looks great on your resume. At Seacoast, the dental assisting program requires that each student complete an externship. This means that you are placed in a real dental office setting where you can apply the theory and clinical skills that you learned in the classroom. This real-world experience can improve your skills, enhance your resume, and build your confidence before you even apply for your first job.
Getting Certified as a Dental Assistant
Dental assistants are not required to be certified, but certification can improve your job prospects, job security, and opportunities for advancement. At Seacoast, our Dental Assisting program is designed to prepare students for the following certifications:
Your instructors and Career Services representatives will talk with you about certification as you get closer to graduation. In most cases, certification exams are offered at an off-campus site, and the graduate is responsible for the cost of the exam. Remember, getting certified is worth the effort! A certification that is recognized nationwide will show prospective employers that you are serious about your career.
