Dental Office Administrators are highly valued employees responsible for coordinating all aspects of a dental visit.

The course includes time in the computer lab so students have the opportunity to practice scheduling and entering patient information just like they would in a dental office. Students are expected to study a lot outside of class time so that they can memorize the required dental terminology.
