Artistic Dental at the Biltmore has officially established its own dental assistant school. Under the direction of Dr. John Dougherty, the Phoenix family and cosmetic dental practice has launched Biltmore Dental Assisting Academy.
The school operates out of Artistic Dental’s office located at 2333 E. Campbell Ave., and applications are now being accepted for the next 10-week schedule of classes, which begins in June.
“Students will have the opportunity for experiential learning under the direction of our team,” says Dougherty.
The Biltmore Dental Assisting Academy offers a focused 10-week course covering the fundamentals in dental assisting and includes lectures and hands-on, mannequin and/or live-patient experience. In addition to lessons, the program requires students to complete a 40-hour externship where they will administer multiple procedures approved by the supervising doctor.
Students fulfilling the course and externship requirements will be granted a Certificate of Completion. They will also be CPR trained, prepared for the DANB Radiology exam and qualified for entry-level dental assistant positions.
Classes will be held on weekends and spots are limited. For more information, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or call 602-840-5400.
