Careers in the medical field are growing at a fast pace, and dental assistants are no exception. The San Jacinto College dental assisting program is one of only five in the Houston area, and will prepare you to assist in everything from patient care to record keeping. As an integral member of the dental health team, dental assistants work directly with the patients, making them as comfortable as possible in the dental chair and preparing them for treatment. They also work alongside the dentist as he or she examines and treats patients.
