Dental Assistant Program
FCC’s Dental Assistant Training Program will provide you with the knowledge and skills you need to begin a rewarding entry-level dental assisting career. The Dental Assisting Program will train you on how to work with dentists to ensure a positive patient experience, and it will teach you how to perform administrative tasks in a dental office.
The Dental Assistant Course will help you develop the skills required to perform essential entry-level dental assisting-related tasks upon graduation. We do so with a hybrid mix of both virtual and onsite classes and lab work, allowing you to complete a portion of the program from the comfort of your own home.
At FCC, we believe that career training cannot be completed by simply sitting in a classroom. For this reason, our students are required to complete an externship with a local employer prior to graduating from the program. The externship ensures that students are able to apply what they’ve learned in the classroom in the real world, better preparing them to begin a new and rewarding career as dental assistants.

One of our admissions team members will reach out and provide you with all of the information needed to enroll in the program. The Dental Assisting Program is an excellent option for caring people who like to work with their hands and enjoy being part of a dental team.

FCC Dental Assistant Training Program - FAQs
Dental assistants are essential contributors within a dental practice’s administrative and clinical teams whose work is meant to improve efficiency and the level of patient care within a clinic. As such, dental assistants often split time between performing front-office tasks like scheduling appointments and updating patient records, back-office and exam-room duties such as exam and procedure prep, equipment sterilization, and chairside assistance. Such efforts require that most successful dental assistants maintain a broad range of medical, administrative, technical, and personal skills.
