JUNEAU – SouthEast Alaska Regional Health Consortium (SEARHC) is continually looking for dental assistants to meet the needs of our growing dental program. For those interested in starting a career as a dental assistant, SEARHC has a Dental Assistant Training Program which not only provides training, but actually employs our trainees.
The role of a dental assistant is the most varied in the dental office and requires both interpersonal and technical skills. Responsibilities may include assisting the dentist during a variety of treatment procedures, such as taking and developing dental x-rays, asking patients about their medical history and taking blood pressure and pulse, infection control, making patients feel at ease during their appointment, and much more.
This is an excellent opportunity with many job opportunities for those with the proper training. Additionally, health care related careers typically offer good pay and employee benefits, as well as the satisfaction of helping others.
The basic requirements to participate in the SEARHC Dental Assistant Training Program include having a high school diploma or GED and the ability to pass a drug test.
