Description: Students work an average of 13 hours per week in a host site (135 hours per term) as part of the dental team. Duties will be assigned according to the student’s skill level and the work needs of the host site. Students experience first-hand the various operations within a dental office primarily as chair-side dental assistants, but practicum experience may include receptionist duties and bookkeeping. Students will expand their skill sets during the sequence: entry-level and some mid-level duties are appropriate for students enrolled in DA152; mid-level and advanced duties, which may include exposing and processing radiographs, taking alginate impressions and pouring stone models, assisting during surgical procedures, and lab preparation for the expanded function class, are appropriate for students enrolled in DA153. Moderated by an instructor, seminars are designed to define expectations, discuss progress, and evaluate current practicum experiences.
