Dental Assisting Faculty to Discuss Program and Give Tours on March 31

Are you interested in pursuing a career as a dental assistant? Or have you been wondering if dental assisting is the right career path for you? You can find out more about the schooling and the profession by talking to Indiana University's dental assisting faculty on March 31.

The IU School of Dentistry invites everyone with an interest in learning more about IU's one-year dental assisting certificate program to the annual DENTAL ASSISTING PRESENTATION AND TOUR, to be held at the school on Saturday, March 31, from 9 a.m. till noon. The school is located on the IUPUI campus at 1121 W. Michigan Street.

Activities get under way in Lecture Hall S116, and will include discussions about dental assisting, admissions criteria for the certificate program, and the curriculum.

IU offers two ways for students to earn their certificates, and you will learn about them, too: The campus program is composed of a class of about 25 students who study primarily at the dental school, and the distance-learning program is designed to accommodate individuals who live far from the dental school or who have full-time obligations that make it difficult for them to enroll in a full-time campus-based program.

Participants will have ample time to discuss details of the program with faculty and take a tour of the school. All prospective students and their parents are welcome as well as high school counselors.

On-campus parking is available in the Vermont Street pay parking garage immediately east of the dental school. Contact Dental Assisting at 317-274-4407 if you plan to attend or have questions.
