The Pacific Health Institute is a healthcare school that focuses on the Dental Industry. We are invested in building the foundation for your career enjoyment and fostering your success.
DENTAL RECEPTION COORDINATOR PROGRAM
The Dental Reception Coordinator program is offered on a full time basis, over two terms. Term 1 consists of theory, while Term 2 consists of theory and clinical dental radiography.
The theory courses are presented through lectures, small group discussions, seminars, online activities, assigned readings, self-study and dental management software. Clinical radiography skills are presented and practiced in the dental clinic. The clinical competencies are developed on manikins, peers, and patients. Acquisition of computer and radiography skills are enhanced through practicum rotations to dental practices.
The Dental Assisting program at the Pacific Health Institute is carefully designed by a nationally recognized instructor with the input of dentists and certified dental assistants. Being the only program in British Columbia that takes place along side an operating clinic, the program at PHI incorporates maximum hands-on-real-world training. This career program will help you gain the life-long skills you need to get started as a successful dental healthcare professional.
