Function and use room by room:
The classroom begins as a place to learn socialization, communication and bonding as a team.
It provides the focus on the direction to be taken to learn a base of information prior to moving to "hands on training".
This is where students will transform their home studies into topics of conversation and questions to be sure their reading/writing and testing as a group are at the same level of comprehension as they move through the program.
In this area we are teaching the students how to "Meet and Greet" their patients while adhering to the HIPAA "Health Insurance Portability/Privacy Act". As a student you will be learning to function as a "Team Member" with the Reception Staff to insure that your patient is scheduled and dismissed with the very best "Customer Service" having been provided throughout their visit with you today.
The policies and procedures for the transfer and sterilization of dirty instruments through the sterilization unit to being cleaned and restocked onto trays or proper storage areas.
Open bay operatory :
The fully functional, 6 chair, operatory is a great way for our students to receive "Continuity of Instruction" as a group. Allowing the instructor to critique when needed and give "Positive Reinforcement" during training.
During the lecture and the hands on lab training of X-Rays the students are learning the proper "Bitewing", "PA" and "Panoramic" procedures.
We highly recommend "Snacks and Water" to keep the body and blood glucose energized. These items are allowed in the classroom area at any time to optimize the flexibility of the brain to "listen and adapt" to a "new vocabulary of reading, writing and applying".
Congratulations to our current class students …….they are on their way to a new career path!!!
The students are excited for what lays ahead in their training as well as their future careers.
The combination of text book and "hands on training" chair side will allow you to offer an employer solid entry level skills so they can accelerate your’ in house training to what is needed in their office.
If you are interested in registering or to reserve your seat for the upcoming Dental Assistant class or the new Dental Reception/Billing class now would be the time to consider your options.
Funding sources to research; upon qualifying there may be partial tuition funding available with OIC of Washington through a seasonal/temporary agricultural employment program. You might contact your local Skill source and/or Labor & Industries, should their programs apply to you.
I would recommend taking a CWSDA information/registration packet with you for their review. This packet may be printed from this site or contact Gail @ or 509-699-1199 to have one sent to you.
Please feel free to contact me should you have any questions at 509-699-1199, or make an appointment to come by the office for a tour of the training facility to discuss any questions you may have with your
