Career Prospects: Dental operators are essentially the dentist's extra hands. They let the dentist/dental operator provide more efficient dental treatment by sterilizing and handling their instruments, passing instruments during the procedure, exposing dental radiographs, taking impressions, and fabricating provisional crowns. Dental operators can focus more time on the procedure, the dental assistant then effectively becomes the operator's extra hands. Dentists rely heavily on the invaluable assistance Dental Assistants provide. The maximum time given to complete a program is three years. This course is recognised and accredited by the International Association of Private Career Colleges (IAPCC).
