Health Sciences Pathway
Students choosing this program will be dually enrolled through Kalamazoo Valley Community College (KVCC) and can earn both high school and college credit for the course. Students will need to meet the college’s entrance expectations, as well as having their schedule open to extended class times and the college’s calendar. Enrollment in the EFE Dental Assisting program begins a preferred relationship with the KVCC Dental Hygiene program that could later impact a student’s acceptance into the KVCC program.
The course prepares students to become dental assistants. Students will learn the fundamental knowledge and skills of dental anatomy, physiology, terminology, dental materials, chair-side assisting, sterilization, radiology, laboratory and clinical procedures. Second semester incorporates an internship held in KVCC’s Dental clinic and local dental offices.
