Please note - this is NOT a beginner dental assisting course.
It is the "next step" for assistants who want to expand their capabilities in dental practice.
Do not consider registering for this course unless you actually have experience in chair side assisting.
This course is designed to provide dental assistants - who have a minimum of six months' chair side dental assisting experience - with the knowledge and skills they need to perform expanded duty dental assisting functions as specified by Louisiana law.
