Frequently Asked Questions

What Do Dentists Do?
Dentists treat patients’ overall oral health, explains the American Association of Orthodontists (AAO). Through regular checkups, dentists can spot and treat cavities, mild gum disease, and oral hygiene problems, and they can also extract teeth that are beyond saving. Dentists also improve the function and appearance of teeth by applying bonding, veneers, or crowns to teeth that are broken, chipped, misshapen, or severely decayed.

What’s more, your dentist checks inside your mouth for signs of oral diseases and gives advice on how to maintain your oral health. If your dentist spots a problem that they aren’t qualified to treat, they will refer you to a dental specialist or physician as appropriate.

What Do Orthodontists Do?
The AAO states that orthodontists specialize in aligning the jaws and moving the teeth. What this means in practice is that orthodontists offer treatments to correct crowded teeth, gaps between teeth, teeth that stick out and jaws that don’t align properly.

Orthodontists have many tools at their disposal to help them move the teeth and jaws into proper alignment, including traditional braces, lingual braces and clear aligners, among other orthodontic appliances. Because alignment problems are unique to each patient, orthodontists use X-rays and photographs of the teeth to create individualized treatment plans, notes the AAO.

Are you certified after the course?

With our program, you will receive certificates of completion in Chairside Assisting, North Carolina X-Ray certification, Dental Emergencies, and OSHA. We now offer the CPR course if you need it.

Do you find us a job when we complete the course?

The student is responsible for applying and interviewing for jobs. We post job openings on our website and within the classroom.

Does the school find or place us in our job shadowing/observation hours that are required?

If a student cannot find shadowing/observation and can prove their efforts to find one, we will arrange shadowing/observation, but conditions may apply.

Will a dentist hire you if you take a short course like yours?

Yes. Many dentists like to train dental assistants in the way of their practices. You can obtain an entry-level position in a dental office as a DA1. Many people don’t know that you don’t have to go to a school to be trained as a dental assistant. It helps, but if the dentist is willing to train you in his office and you work for 3000 hours with that dentist, you can then take the dental assisting national boards without going to a school.

Is the dental X-Ray included in the dental assisting program?


Can you just take the dental X-Ray course?

In dentistry, an individual has to be a dentist, assistant, hygienist, or dental receptionist with a DA1 status to take radiographs. The dental X-Ray course requirements are the student must have worked in a dental office for at least one year as a DA1. We welcome all DA2 who have moved to the North Carolina area needing the NC X-Ray Certificate. An individual who has a current CDA is exempted from the state requirements.
