Concorde in North Hollywood – Dental Assistant

As
a Dental Assistant, you will work chairside with the dentist;
as well as in the dental laboratory and the business office.

At Concorde you will receive “multi-tasked” training, which
means you will be trained in both clinical and administrative
capabilities.

Clinical responsibilities include sterilizing and preparing
instrument trays, exposing and

processing x-rays, conducting oral inspections, preparing
patients for treatment, and taking vital signs. Administrative
responsibilities include patient charting, appointment setting,
completing insurance forms, accounts payable and fee collections.
