The OTC Dental Assisting Program provides opportunities for students to discover their talents and abilities to achieve excellence in the dental service industry. Our faculty and staff continually encourage ethical and professional behavior while helping students reach their full potential.

This program helps students develop foundational skills, foster teamwork and prepare them for the workforce. The program’s curriculum is a mix of classroom learning and clinical work to reinforce academic concepts.
