Anticipated Dental Assisting Instructor
Randolph Technical Career Center offers twelve full-day technical education programs, each of which offers college credits or industry certifications to students as part of their high school education. Graduates of the Dental Assisting Program are prepared for higher education and/or entry into dental assisting positions upon successful completion of licensure.
Randolph Technical Career Center has a Dental Assisting faculty opening beginning with the 2021-2022 school year. This is a new program to RTCC and the instructor would be integral in the development of the program. The program is contingent upon grant funding for its first two years as the program grows and develops.
The Dental Assisting program is a full-time high school program preparing secondary students for post-secondary study and employment in the industry. The RTCC Dental Assisting program prepares students to provide patient care, conduct dental x-rays, prepare patients and equipment for dental procedures, and discharge office administrative functions under the supervision of dentists and dental hygienists. The Dental Assisting program includes instruction in medical recordkeeping, general office duties, reception and patient intake, scheduling, equipment maintenance and sterilization, basic radiography, oral photography, pre- and post- operative patient care and instruction, chairside assisting, performing tooth and mouth impressions, and professional supervision. Students have the opportunity to practice their dental assisting skills in our school-based lab and at local dental practices. Professional Skills developed by business and industry leaders across Vermont are integrated throughout the program. Dental Assisting students develop leadership, social, civic, and career skills through participation in Career and Technical Student Organizations.
Proven collaboration with relevant constituencies and business leaders and/or related business experience is preferred.
5 years of Industry experience as a Dental Assistant or relevant experience in the field is required. Obtaining Licensure as a Career & Technical Education instructor with the Vermont Agency of Education, if not already licensed, will be part of the first 3 years of employment.
