Vista College Killeen Offers New Dental Assistant Program

Killeen, TX – February 13, 2015 – Vista College announces the addition of a Dental Assistant program on its Killeen campus, the third of Vista’s eight on-ground campuses to offer the program. Enrollment begins immediately for classes, which start in March 2015.

“We could not be more excited to offer this new Dental Assistant program to the community of Killeen,” said Tim Armstrong, campus director. “Expanded health insurance coverage has led to more dental patients, which should drive the demand for dental assistants in dentists’ offices and outpatient care centers. Our campus is proud to be the third of Vista’s eight on-ground campuses to offer this program!”

The Dental Assistant program is designed to prepare students to function effectively as integral members of dental health teams. Students are given instruction in performing chair-side assisting procedures, patient care, tray preparation for specific procedures, and maintaining accurate patient and dental charting records. The program includes instruction in rubber dam and matrix band applications, dental manipulation and applications, patient education, post-operative instructions, coronal polishing, fluoride applications, and infection control procedures. Graduates of the Dental Assistant program will be prepared to seek employment in dental offices or related businesses. Upon completion of the program, a Diploma is awarded.

Vista College offers a wide variety of career training programs throughout Texas, New Mexico and online. Each career program is staffed with industry experts and leading professionals, ensuring students an affordable, quality education that will help them pursue successful careers in their chosen fields.
