Dental Assisting Program

The Santa Cruz County Office of Education is proud to offer a career pathway into a dental assisting career. Our program offers the student basic entry-level information, skills and clinical practice in all areas relating to the field of dental assisting.

The dental assistant is a valuable member of the dental health team who performs many essential duties in the dental office. All instruction is geared to chairside assisting, providing patient care, and related duties with minimal training in front office administrative skills.
