Dental Assisting FAQs

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Can I take only one course at a time?

    Yes, this program may be taken on a part-time basis. It will simply take longer to complete. Part-time students must meet with a program advisor. If you choose to take all the courses as they are offered, you can complete your certificate in as little as one academic year.

  • How can I prepare for enrollment in the Dental Assisting program?

    Students interested in pursuing a career as a dental assistant must first register to become a student at MCC. The academic advisor will arrange assessment testing to determine a student’s readiness for college coursework. Dental assisting students must show college-level abilities on the assessment test in the areas of math, reading and writing.

  • Will my MCC Certificate in Dental Assisting help me be accepted into the MCC Dental Hygiene program?

    Yes, the application criteria for dental hygiene awards additional points for graduates of the MCC dental assisting program. However, dental hygiene applicants must complete 31 credit hours of prerequisite coursework before they are eligible to apply. All prerequisite courses are available at MCC. With the exception of one course, the dental assisting program coursework will not transfer to the dental hygiene program. Completion of DAE 106 can be substituted for DEH 106 when coupled with successful completion of the Dental Assisting National Board (DANB) Radiation Health & Safety (RHS) exam.

  • Can I work while I’m a student in the Dental Assisting program?
