Dental students bring smiles to preschool

Lake Tahoe Community College dental assisting students recently visited the college preschool to share information during dental health week with the children. Julie Cruz, Joy Ogami, Laura Juarez and Melissa Busby presented a workshop on brushing and flossing.

This summer Lake Tahoe Community College will offer courses in continuing education for working dental assistants in the area. Three of these “mini” courses will meet California state requirements for RDA license renewal. The classes focus on RDA duties and also will help individuals prepare for the state board examination to become a registered dental assistant. The fourth class is designed to help dental assistants who have experience taking dental X-rays, but still need an X-ray certificate. This challenge course allows individuals to challenge the state written examination and quickly complete the remaining practical requirements.

Classes offered are:

1. California Registered Dental Assisting Written Review Course, five class sessions starting June 26.

2. California Radiation Safety Certificate: Challenge Course, two class sessions starting June 27.

3. Placement of Periodontal Surgical Dressings, six CE units, two class sessions starting July 17.

4. Placement of Temporary Class II Restorations, six CE units, two class sessions starting July 24.

5. Fabrication of Temporary Acrylic Crowns, eight CE units, two class sessions starting July 26.
