Medical Assistants will also perform many clerical duties, including updating records, arranging for hospital admission and laboratory services, and handling correspondence, billing, and bookkeeping. Medical assisting is among the fastest growing careers in the U.S. In fact, the Department of Labor reports that the need for medical assistants is expected to grow 34 percent between 2008 and 2018, which is much greater than average job growth. The Registered Medical Assistant Certificate is a noncredit program. The length of the program is approximately two years (part-time) including the clinical externship with classes in the evening and Saturdays.

12 PAGE 12 Asnuntuck Community College Workforce Development and Continuing Education Fall 2015 Career Catalog Dental Assistant Program (RHS & ICE Certification) (264 hours) Dental assistants perform a variety of patient care, office, and laboratory duties. They sterilize and disinfect instruments and equipment, prepare and lay out the instruments and materials required to treat each patient, and obtain and update patients dental records. Assistants make patients comfortable in the dental chair and prepare them for treatment. During dental procedures, assistants work alongside the dentist. They hand instruments and materials to dentists and keep patients mouths dry and clear by using suction hoses or other devices. They also instruct patients on postoperative and general oral healthcare. Dental assistants prepare materials for impressions and restorations, and process dental x-rays as directed by a dentist. They also may remove sutures, apply topical anesthetics to gums or cavity-preventive agents to teeth, remove excess cement used in the filling process, and place dental dams to isolate teeth for treatment. Many states are expanding dental assistants duties to include tasks such as coronal polishing and restorative dentistry functions for those assistants who meet specific training and experience requirements. Dental assistants with laboratory duties make casts of the teeth and mouth from impressions, clean and polish removable appliances, and make temporary crowns. Those with office duties schedule and confirm appointments, receive patients, keep treatment records, send bills, receive payments, and order dental supplies and materials. Dental assistants must work closely with, and under the supervision of, dentists. Dental assistants are an important part of the oral healthcare team with dental hygienists and dentists. They are usually employed by private and group practices, public health clinics, mobile dental clinics, military service, dental schools and even insurance companies.
