The Dental Assistant program at Fox Valley Technical College is fully accredited by the American Dental Association Commission on Dental Accreditation (ADA).
Upon completion of the program, you will receive a diploma and be eligible to take the certification examination administered by the Dental Assisting National Board.
Students must submit a Health History Form, including required immunizations - a Hepatitis B vaccination is strongly recommended, (no physical required), to the FVTC Health Services office (A164) by the start of occupational specific coursework; to access the form, please go to www.fvtc.edu/healthservices
There is an estimated wait time of up to one semester AFTER your admit term to enter occupational specific courses; while waiting to start occupational specific courses, you may choose to take general education and elective courses required for your degree or diploma program.
Before entering Pre-clinical (Dental Hygiene) or Clinical (Dental Assistant), evidence of CPR certification that includes 2-person CPR must be on file with the Preclinical/Clinical instructor.
