Expanded Training in Orthodontics

2 weeks

Looking to take your career as a dental assistant to the next level? CDI College's Expanded Training in Orthodontics program trains practicing Certified Dental Assistants and Registered Dental Hygienists in specialized orthodontic treatments and procedures. Students will learn to use the instruments, equipment and accessories used in orthodontics, as well as the various categories of orthodontic treatment.

Courses will cover orthodontic treatments, including orthodontic appliances. Students will also learn to organize, prepare, and perform orthodontic duties such as taking health histories, documentation of procedures and fitting and removal of various appliances.

Once this module has been successfully completed, the student must apply to the College of Dental Surgeons of British Columbia (CDSBC) to have this designation added to their certificate.

This program is modular-based and is open to those who are Licensed as a Certified Dental Assistant or Registered Dental Hygienist in British Columbia. 

*For those who do not have their dental certification, CDI College also offers a Dental Assistant program that trains you to enter the field of dentistry.

This program has been approved by the registrar of the Private Training Institutions Branch (PTIB) of the Ministry of Advanced Education and Skills Training.

My career choice has changed my life by giving me a purpose; a career instead of just a job. I would recommend this program to anybody who is looking to start a career in the field.
