Pathway I
This option is for the student with no previous dental experience. Students attend clinical classes in a traditional on campus setting while using an online format for the theory classes. We encourage full-time status with students completing the program in one year.

Learn more about Pathway I.

Pathway II (ADAEP)
This Pathway is for the dental assistant with two or more years of dental assisting experience and eligible for the Dental Assisting National Board (DANB) Certified Dental Assistant (CDA) exam.

Applicants will receive college credit for passing the DANB CDA examination prior to entry. Students will be required to attend a two-day seminar on campus, during the first week of classes. They will then return to their offices to complete assigned class projects under the supervision of their licensed dentist employer. The two will work as a team to complete clinical validations for the program. Homework, class assignments, lectures, and tests will be done by using the WCC online Blackboard system. E-mail will enable communication with the WCC course instructor.
