Message from the
the Dental Assistant Program at Labette Community College!
are excited to be offering this program for our students and
community. Today, there are fewer dentists graduating, and
qualified dental assistants are becoming increasingly valuable
members of dental teams to fill service gaps across the country.
My career as a dental assistant began in 1984 in private
practice. Since that time, I have worked in a variety of
dental settings including private practices, multi-specialties
practices, dental clinics, and a dental practice management and
team growth company. I have been in dental education since
2005, and have found it to be extremely rewarding. It is
an exciting time to be in the field of dentistry, I hope you
will find it to be an inviting and fulfilling career.
