HLT35015 – Certificate III in Dental Assisting is delivered by Health Courses Australia with RTO Code 32412 

Course Outline:

Dental Assistants are highly sought after and enjoy a great pay rate. This Nationally Recognised qualification provides students with skills and knowledge required to work as a Dental Assistant in a Dentist’s Practice.

The uniqueness of our course is that we provide the students with their work place observation in a dental surgery through our alliance with few highly successful dental surgeries in Gold Coast and Brisbane. Assistance is provided for work place observation in other areas.

There would be a nurse or dentist with you at all times explaining the procedures, instruments, infection control protocols throughout the duration of work place observation. At the end of the six weeks, you would have had an exposure to all aspects of general dentistry.

This is an excellent program and also very unique as the dental practices will take special care with your observations unlike other work place observations. In addition you will also receive a Certificate of attendance from the Dental Practice which will be an added advantage for your resume.

The course is done completely via distance other than the Work Place observation. work place observation is a mandatory requirement for the course.
