Because they are usually the first faces patients see at the dentist’s office, Dental Office Administrators are key members of the dental health team. As such, they must be knowledgeable, organized and client focused. If you are looking for a career in the dental field, the Dental Office Administrator program at Vancouver College is a great choice.
In the Dental Office Administrator program, you will study dental terminology and pharmacology. You will also learn to prepare dental tests and to respond to questions about various dental conditions as well as prescriptions. In addition, you will receive Standard First Aid and CPR certificates. A practicum placement in a dental office will allow you opportunities to explore the career field.
As a graduate of this program, you'll be prepared to begin a career as a Dental Office Administrator, Dental Receptionist, or Dental Claims Administrator. You will also meet job requirements to work in specialty medical and dental offices and to act as sales representatives for medical or dental manufacturing companies.
