Leave Them Smiling

Leave Them Smiling

The Dental Assistant students at Pima Medical Institute, 957 S. Dobson Road in Mesa are looking for a few good (and bad) mouths to teach proper brushing and flossing techniques during February, National ChildrenÂ’s Dental Health Month.

(PRWEB) February 4, 2005

Teachers, or others who work with children, are encouraged to call Rhonda Miller at 480-644-0267 to set up an appointment to have the dental assistant students interact with the children while providing useful information on proper oral hygiene.

“Teaching children about proper dental hygiene is a win/win opportunity,” said Fredonna Newton, campus director for the Mesa career college. “The children will learn how to care for their teeth, and our students will receive hands-on experience working in their field.”

The training period for dental assistants is 30 weeks for day classes for day classes, or 33 weeks for evening classes. According to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment for Dental Assistants is expected to grow much faster than the average for all occupations through 2012.

The Mesa campus offers programs for Dental Assistant; Massage Therapy; Medical Assistant; Medical Administrative Assistant; Pharmacy Technician; Phlebotomy Technician, Physical Therapy Technician; Radiography; Respiratory Therapy and Veterinary Assistant.
