Dental Services

Working under the personal supervision of a dentist, certified dental assistant students can provide many preventative services directly to patients. These include oral hygiene instruction, polishing of teeth, pit and fissure sealants and topical fluoride applications. At the Okanagan College Certified Dental Assistant's Patient Clinic, dentists, certified dental assisting students and instructors work together to provide:

  • Oral hygiene instructions (brushing & flossing)
  • Removal of light-medium stains on teeth by polishing
  • Topical fluoride
  • Sealants
  • X-rays (intra or extra oral)

Our partnership with the dental community provides additional opportunities for students to confirm their learning in the practice environment. By calling Okanagan College and asking for the Certified Dental Assistant Program, you could be seen in the early spring.
