EXPANDED TRAINING IN ORTHODONTICS

Looking to take your career as a dental assistant to the next level? CDI College’s Expanded Training in Orthodontics program trains practicing Certified Dental Assistants and Registered Dental Hygienists in specialized orthodontic treatments and procedures. Students will learn to use the instruments, equipment and accessories used in orthodontics, as well as the various categories of orthodontic treatment.

Courses will cover orthodontic treatments, including orthodontic appliances. Students will also learn to organize, prepare, and perform orthodontic duties such as taking health histories, documentation of procedures and fitting and removal of various appliances.

Once this module has been successfully completed, the student must apply to the College of Dental Surgeons of British Columbia (CDSBC) to have this designation added to their certificate.

This program is modular-based and is open to those who are Licensed as a Certified Dental Assistant or Registered Dental Hygienist in British Columbia. For more information on the program, fill out the REQUEST INFO form or contact a campus advisor.
