Dental Assisting Program Makes Halloween a Fun Learning Experience



On Thursday, October 27 the students in the MVCTC Adult Dental Assisting Program demonstrated proper brushing techniques and discussed good oral health habits with their costumed visitors.  The young visitors practiced their skills on some willing stuffed animals.

Good oral habits are important for Superheroes, Princesses, Ninjas and even Minions.  In addition to instructing patients on oral health care, students learn to assist the dentist with a variety of patient office and laboratory duties.  90% of the 2015 graduating class have jobs.  Dental Assistants are projected to be in demand through 2020.
