Dental Assistant


Downtown Milwaukee Campus 


This one-semester program prepares students to perform a variety of patient care techniques that are done under the supervision of a dentist during the examination and treatment. Coursework includes academic and clinical competencies, and students will have 128 hours of clinical experience in a dental practice. 

MATC also offers bilingual (Spanish) courses for this technical diploma program.

Career Outlook: Employment opportunities for trained dental assistants are plentiful in private offices, hospitals and clinic settings. As dentists’ workloads increase, they are expected to hire more assistants to perform routine tasks.
