Dental Assisting Students Gain Hands-on Experience
Students in the Dental Assisting Program gained hands-on experience learning to take and record vital signs, the first clinical skills addressed in Dental Assisting. Students visit a partnering retirement center each Friday for three weeks and record vital signs of participants. Dental Assisting Instructor, Ms. Maxfield shared, "Establishing a baseline of a patient's overall health data is an integral part of every dental visit. Vital recordings, including pulse rate, respiration rate, and blood pressure should be established at each visit and prior to dental treatment." The students and participants in the retirement center enjoyed the hands-on opportunity!
