Application packets for the Dental Assistant Training Program at Fort Leonard Wood will be available through June 22 in Building 470, Room 1130.
Applications can also be obtained through e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org, or download from www.facebook.com/ARCFortWood/.
The Dental Assistant Program, offered by the American Red Cross, in partnership with the Dental Activity, Fort Leonard Wood, is scheduled to begin September 2018.
The program is open to military/dependent/retiree/DoD ID card holders (18 or older), who are U.S. citizens. Due to chemical and x-ray exposure, women who are pregnant will not be considered for this program.
The Dental Assistant Program is a 6 month, 40 hours/week combination classroom and hands-on basic education and clinical skills program. Participation selection will be determined through interview. Those selected will receive intense training in all aspects of dental assisting-from dental radiology to dental anatomy, and from sterilizing dental instruments to chair-side clinic rotations.
Those selected must be prepared to clear required background checks, complete online volunteer registrations, orientations, and acquire all necessary immunizations. Selectees must provide their own transportation and child care needs.
