This course requires a practicum/co-op how does this work?
A practicum may be required to receive a course certificate with our programs. M. Dent College will assist you in finding an office open to receiving a student practicum. If the student has a hard time getting one on their own M. Dent can draw from their resources to assist the student. This requirement is important to both; the institute and the student to gain insight into the daily functions and roles of either a DOA or DOSO.
How does M. Dent's program compare to others?
M. Dent College is owned and operated and founded by a registered dental hygienist that has her own clinic in Calgary. The course is taught hands on, which gives the student a more familiar setting in areas such as sterile bay, front desk and general familiarity with a dental practice setting. This program is affordable, current, hands-on. It offers so many features that are above and beyond other course curriculum's without filler classes such as typing. In our program we offer a guest speakers guest interviewers and student Dentrix workshops and wonderful patient trainers. This program is truly one-of-a-kind.
