Certificate IV in Dental Assisting (Oral Health Promotion Specialisation)

A Certificate IV in Dental Assisting – Oral Health Promotion Specialisation (HLT45015) from Foundation Education, will give you the skills and knowledge you require to assist a Dentist, Dental Therapist or Oral Dental Hygienist during dental health care procedures.

Through the Oral Health Promotion Specialisation, you will learn the specialist skills you need to promote your own oral health program. This includes developing patient-specific oral hygiene programs, including those specific to older people. In addition to this, you’ll learn how to maintain high standards of infection control and effectively assist with practice administration. You will graduate with job ready skills that will allow you to work in a range of sectors, including dental, oral surgery, orthodontics and community health clinics.

Dental Assistants are imperative to all aspects of a dental practice, as they ensure that high standards of quality patient care are met. If you’re looking for flexible working hours, Dental Assisting is a great option, as many practices offer casual and part-time work.
