Intra-Oral Dental Assistant Levels I & II

As an Intra Oral Dental Assistant, you work chairside and receive and prepare patients for treatment. You sterilize, prepare, and set out dental instruments and materials, process x-rays, assist dentists during dental procedures and record dental procedures performed. You also educate patients, polish clinical crowns, and apply fluoride. On the technical side, you apply dental dams, pit, and fissure sealants, desensitizing agents, topical anaesthetic, and acid etch materials.

You also take preliminary impressions for diagnostic casts and expose radiographs (x-rays). Beyond the chair, Dental Assistants may also take on an administrative role, answering telephone calls and coordinating appointment schedules, as required.

Our Intra Oral Dental Assistant program is HARP approved (Healing Arts Radiation Protection) by the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care. This course is specifically designed for dental assistants aiming to be employed in a dental practice in Ontario, and wish to be HARP qualified in the exposure of prescribed dental radiographs.
