At Barry Tech, students will learn the skills needed to assist in all phases of dentistry, from taking X-rays to four-handed chairside assisting, and will have the opportunity to complete a clinical rotation and assist in actual dental procedures. Through hands-on experience, students will develop skills as receptionists, office managers, chair-side assistants and the use of personal computers for patient records, billing and correspondence.
